Hmmmm, after looking at some other people's recent posts, might this be a young type of Amaurobiidae? I apologize that the colors aren't quite accurate.
Actually, I take that back unless the spinnerets are more prominent on some of their species?
Hmm, I was actually thinking it looked a lot like a young parson spider, and it might be, but you can't tell from this picture unfortunately. Also it was wicked fast like one.
I agree it is an Eastern Parson Spider. The glare of the flash makes it look pale.
That's what I meant Ungoliant. I saw that the parson spider was in the ground spider group, so I thought it could possibly be that. And yes, it was much darker than that.
