small spider against big wasp

I couldn't resist the urge to grab the camera for a close up view of my window spider embraced in a fierce battle with a wasp 3 times its size.

After several tries I got lucky and seemed to have captured the moment when the spider demonstrates control by securing all the legs of the wasp into one spot as if he's been handcuffed. You can notice less fight in the buzz of his wings and an overall feeling of giving up.

If you listen close you can hear the mule garden deer deterrent in the background.
