    Found this fellow in the house and decided we'd both be happier if he was moved to the great out of doors.

    I believe that's a 'Wolf Spider'.....good pic.

    I was laying down in the leaves in the Fall woods back during October getting some ground level shots of some colorful mushrooms, and as I was getting back up saw one like that right beside my hip...glad it didn't get up under my shirt or pant leg, LOL...

    Not a wolf spider, seems more of a Theraphosidae to me (Tarantula!) Perhaps an Avicularia species? (Seeing you're from Colombia :))
