I found this spider wasp with a paralyzed jumping spider minus his legs. I would have thought jumping spiders would be hard to catch, they are very aware of their surroundings. 
Not very nice being paralyzed and eaten by these wasps babies!

Sad news for the Jumper-I guess that's life though, or the opposite, depending on your point of view. Good illustration on the behavior.
