Comments & ID Thoughts

Maybe it is a wolf spider, it looks very fuzzy/furry. A moth flew into the web, then it raced down a grabbed the moth and maybe it bit it ot was just squeezing it and then it wrapped it up and took ut back to the middle of the web. The big fat butt part looks like light brown with 4 dots, the front part of the spider looks kind of gray and the legs are light brown mostly but they have black on top of the first segment attached to the body.
