Caught the tail (leg) end of this confrontation between a web spider and a digger wasp. The wasp left unhurt but the spider had a rather damaged leg and had possibly been stung.

cool, I take it that's the remains of a web on the wasp's face.

Thanks all for the comments.
Toby yes that's spider's web on the wasps face. The wasp is actually still partially stuck in web that doesn't show against the white window frame.

Great series. Would the spider normally try to eat the wasp or would the wasp try and eat the spider or would they just avoid each other if the wasp hadn't got caught in the web?

Thanks for the comments JM and NSNO :)

NSNO - suspect the spider would normally have a go at the wasp but not V.V

Excellent capture sequence Brian, that must have nipped a bit for the poor spider.
