Trick or treat?

The spider on my porch eaves finds a scorpion in her web. 

I wonder, does she see this as a threat or a treat?

The situation reminds me of the Taoist Farmer story: 
Chance encounters: good thing or bad?

Two nights later, the spider had built a new web, and the scorpion? My guess is he was cut from the web, free to pursue his dastardly ways.

I found this picture fascinating and sort of creepy at the same time. Good shot! :-)
