Female Nursery Web Spiders carry their egg sacs around like this until the eggs are about to hatch at which point they will build a protective 'nursery web' for them to hatch into. They will then protect the nursery from predators.
All images were taken with a Canon 60mm macro. My lens of choice would have been my Sigma 150mm macro but it was being repaired at the time.
