Mama w/Egg case - Araneus diadematus - female

Mama w/Egg case - Araneus diadematus - Female
Enumclaw, Forested Unincorporated King County, Washington, USA
October 23, 2009
Size: Spider 14mm; Case 20mm
Mama clutching her egg case. Nice shot of eye pattern also.

I had been handling this spider and ended up getting shanked by her spines. lol. I originally included a photo of one of her macrosetae lodged in my finger (it has since been frassed). They are relatively sharp, and you can see how long they can get in this photo.
