Comments & ID Thoughts
I think this might be a Wolf Spider. I found it in a back yard light fixture I was working on for a friend. It appeared that it had caught a moth I found wrapped in a web below the light fixture. To work on the light I had it climb onto a stick and I placed it on the ground which it ran for shade very quickly.
