The first one is a wolf spider; the second one is a grass spider - looks like an Agelenopsis sp.

I think I am mistaking funnel web spiders and grass spiders as wolf spiders. They all look very similar but it appears that the wolf spiders have a wider body.

Funnel spiders have prominent spinnerets; those of wolf spiders are difficult to see in a dorsal view.

Wolf spiders? get HUGE. This grass spider was new to me, had one little spider I didnt take a pic of that was on my parsley-green abdomen, he had a small green 'inch worm' dangling under him, I gave him a cheer and left him be.
