Shelly, I've moved this spotting to plants for you. The "Other" category is for organisms such as mollusks, worms, sea anemones, corals & jellyfish, not for unidentified spottings.
Please complete the scientific name now that Dan has identified this for you. Thanks!

No, Alice, the spider's eating a bee or fly, which is on its back. Great spotting!
