I also came across this caterpillar, the larva of a Silver Y moth, which made an interesting closeup.....

Thanks Beth, it took quite a few shots to get the balance of focus right between the spider and prey. I must have just missed it actually catching the fly, as in the first few shots i took the fly was still alive and struggling....it was quickly subdued though.
