Hello! This winter has been very mild for where I am and I have been seeing a lot of spiders. This big (probably 3 cm or so) guy/gal was on my doorstep, and its orange color caught my eye. It looks like a wolf spider to me but it could be something else (I need to study more).
Photo was taken in the evening and zoomed in, sorry for the bad quality.

Pisauridae have such an endearing trait. Ordinarily very skittish and run-for-cover, the mom will usually guard and defend that nursery like a tiger. A complete personality reversal.
