Thanks Gilma, I'm thinking that it might be a wasp species that is specialized in hunting spiders. This one just happened to pick the wrong spider.

Thank you, Sigg. Yes the spider here has the upper hand, that is because it is a jumping spider....smartest spiders I have ever seen!!
You are right, it does looks like the same wasp in both of our spottings!! Your series is great, the pictures are so clear, your picture #3 is great...the wasps face looks so funny almost like a cartoon..... : )
