16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Allocosa oculata (Simon, 1876) (Araneae:Lycosidae), a typical Sardinian wolf spider

I located the spider around 23:00, in full darkness, thanks to his eyes shining in the light of my headlamp. They emerge at evening to hunt individually, but seeing many gives the impression of a wolfpack, hence the family name "Lycosidae"
