It is nocturnal since I only seen it at night and it is around .8 inches in length. Its abdomen is bigger than the rest of its body. The spider is a pale skin type of color with a red shading covering its abdomen. Spider has had a web on my tree for 2 weeks and at night I have to be careful since It is placed where I could easily run into it. Spider always rest in the middle of the web at night and is no where to be found in the morning.

Bad drawing of spider but kinda like that but light in color and with a lighter color red covering it.

Is that it? If so, it's a red-backed jumping spider or "Johnson Jumper". I don't think any inuendo was intended with the colloquial name. I'm not sure if these spiders spin webs, though. I think that some widow spiders can have an all red abdomen and some orb-weavers have red abdomens as well.

FiveHorses, we have those all over the place here. (Yes I live in north Florida.)

Rgomez912, I saw a pale spider with a huge abdomen scurrying away from me very early one morning last week. But it was on the ground--it was NOT a wolf spider, that I know. It was very pale colored, with no fur, but I don't remember any red.
It was so early that it was still kind of dark outside, and I lost track of of the spider when it got under some bushes.

No it is not black in any way . Its just a pale spider with small legs with what looks like pale red coloring on its abdomen. Not the type of red that covers its whole abdomen more like splotches here and there.

Since my camera is able to get a better view of it than I could before it does seem to have small hairs on its body.
