Hard to believe how time has flown, but the16th DG annual photo contest has begun! Find the details here. Best wishes to all the entrants!!!

Can anyone tell me what type of spider this is please?

There's hundreds of these spiders living in my garden.

I have a relatively small garden, theres a border of plants and flowers around the edge and the middle of the garden is all stones. The spiders seem to be living/hiding in the stones. They don't seem to have made any webs, instead live on the ground. I'd guess they're about an inch long (inc legs). For a while i thought they were wolf spiders, but found out wolf spiders are nocturnal -and these spiders are most active in the afternoon sun. I did see one that looked like it had a white egg sac on it though.

(sorry, spiders are a little camouflaged in the stones)

Could very well be wolf spiders - this family includes some very small species, and I have seen them active during the daytime.
