The wasp appears to have caught a mouse spider, perhaps Stuart Harris would like to comment

I photographed the spider after the wasp had abandoned it (Wolf spider (Lycosidae) Lycosidae sp. (family) (Unidentified wolf spider) on 29 Nov 2018). I thought it was a wolf spider. When I looked again about 20 minutes later it was swarming with ants.
