Author's notes

The images show a Jumping Spider with its prey, another spider (unsure as to type) caught just as it completed shedding its exoskeleton. The spiders were on an Acronychia otandra. C9913901. ANBG Section 112. Thanks to Marcus Leach for the initial sighting of this very small event.

The jumping spider is a female. The prey is a crab spider, Sidymella trapezia.
