Love the light, angle and the bg. I might go a little higher in the frame to get a bit off center, but this is cool as presented.
Good light,

Fine capture of the spider and prey. A hard one for selecting an angle - a lower angle to the right would get the spider's eyes, but probably miss the nice view of the beetle you captured.

A fine image to be enjoyed

In this subject matter you are always going to struggle with DOF/Angles - and for my money this is decent in both regards

Have a great Xmas

All the best
