Through the viewfinder, I didn't see the small orb-weaver (out of focus, pics #1-2) on the twig. The bug was actually getting ready to pounce. Although it was incredibly fast, the spider got away. Bug measured about 15mm in length, with orange protonum and hemelytra; rest of the body was pale with black bands.
Found in 'El Cimatario', a national park in semi-arid area just outside the city. The rainy season is now in full swing and many animals are venturing out.
