Author's notes

My attention was drawn to a yellowish, brown oval spinning on the end of a silk thread which seemed to be attached to some bark. The oval made its way back to the bark where I saw it was a female Jovial Jumping Spider with a cockroach. The spider stayed on the bark for a while, gripping the cockroach. I looked away to set-up my tripod and the spider, with its meal, had disappeared.
