Grass Spider Family

DescriptionThere are a lot of grass spider nests around at present, this is soon going to be another.  Mum was hanging around very patiently with a big egg sac, maybe not happy I was getting up close, but certainly not running away, or moving to hide.  I'm not having a lot of luck shooting the nests because the web obfuscates the contents badly when you focus past it, and I don't have enough depth of field even stopped down to really resolve the babies well.  Plus white web and dark brown spiders is not ideal for lighting.
