A better photo of this girl, we've named Bernadette.
That’s great! Yep, I’m sticking with Dolomedes tenebrosus. Were you saying she has a nest?
Yes! She has been on it or beside it for the past few days. We just moved into our new home and she came with it lol I will post a pic of what I believe is her nest. And, thank you for identifying Bernadette. 🙂
That’s great! I’m so glad you guys appreciate her.
Do you live near water? The Dark Fishing Spider is the most likely of the Dolomedes species to be found away from water.
Thanks for the links. We are about 10 to 12 minutes away from water – Lake Nippising being the largest body, then all sorts of smaller bodies and rivers. We are fasinated with her! Thanks again.
You are very welcome! I enjoy the opportunity to learn a little more about a neat creature. I’d love to see ongoing updates as the babies hatch and mature!
I will keep you in the loop! I look forward watching her do her thing! More to follow…
