I came across this Small Bird-dropping Spider (Arkys curtulus) just in time to witness the most amazing stroke of luck a spider could possibly have. This brown bug, which it had ambushed, had a tiny, green leafhopper clinging to its back, so when the spider had immobilised the bug, it was just a matter of flipping it around and - hey presto, entrée and main!
