Found this female spider lugging her egg sac in my garden today. Can anyone identify it for me?It may be some type of wolf spider?

This looks like one type of Nursery Web Spider. They carry the egg sack around with them until just before hatching and then build a type of nursery web in some weeds or grass. They do not build bug-catching webs. they rely on eating whatever bugs they can over-power.

You're absolutely right, horseart. It's in the family Pisauridae - VERY close relative of the wolf spiders. They carry their egg sacs in their chelicerae, while the wolf spiders carry them attached to the spinnerets, on the tip of the abdomen. From the dorsal pattern, it looks a lot like Pisaurina mira.

Neat photos. I have a Macro lens on the way and when I get it I want to try a get a photo of some Spiders living in the storage area of the store. They are HUGE and move very fast, usually from side to side.
