I encountered this fellow quite by chance. He was resting motionless in the bathroom sink, and being of considerable color and proportion, he caught my eye. I started shooting and, assuming he was asleep or otherwise preoccupied and not caring, I kept on shooting.
However, I must have startled him because suddenly he exited to the nearest hiding place, perhaps his temporary home away from home?

Not sure what type of spider he is, so any help would be appreciated. It looks like a wolf or possibly a hobo spider, but not sure. This image will give you a sense of size compared to a US Quarter.
