Cellar spider (Pholcus phalangiodes) with eggs

I was at a family friend's house where the large garage always has arachnid occupants. As a spider enthusiast, I was searching the dark corners of the room for spiders. I soon came across this large cellar spider carrying her eggs in an almost spherical bundle. This spiders are excellent mothers and with carry the eggs around until they hatch and the spiderlings disperse.
