So I grabbed my camera and went and got it;

Appears she was correct and good capture ! I can also imagine the look on her face with your completley understandable instinct to grab the camera first

Nice one! Those guys move fast too. So you have to get the camera quick, how nice of your wife to alert you.

She was expecting to see a jar in my hand.

More of an alarm than an alert.

um, ew.

However, my 13 year old son who is the budding entomologist and herpetologist had me taking pictures of an interesting bug he found last night. Unfortunately (?) it was a really really tiny bug and I couldn't get a decently clear shot of it.

I'm with your wife. Ew. Get a jar and get it out of there.

My guess is that he/she is some member of the wolf spider family. This is only a guess.
