Author's notes

This spider was determined to have this beetle for lunch, trying from different angles. The beetle was still alive and seemed to flatten its body against the leaf with the spider then seemingly unable to reach a soft spot. I didn't stay long enough to see who won but the last photo almost sees the spider having given up - almost.
