Default Another spider with prey

Paul recently posted a great series of Clearwing Moth in Garden Spider web. I noticed a similar "event" while out bicycling the other day. Glad to have the camera with me.
In this case, the prey is Tiger Swallowtail, and the predator is another Golden Garden Spider.
Here are several views - any preferences?

And, just for fun, here's a female Blue Dasher who was posing nicely on our front porch the other morning!

Nice sequence. Prefer #1 because there is more green in the bokeh - I find the white background intrusive. Great poses for the dragonfly !

For your spider pictures I like both the first and last ones - I like the white on white look and minimalist look of the last one. The first one I prefer more than the third one because it shows the web better and offers more feeling of place then either the second or third ones. But that's just my opinion.
