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.
