Thanks for the help!
I've updated the image to reflect the identifications

And yes, Spider is instead
Misumenoides formosipes

Spider
may be a white banded crab spider, but I'm not real familiar with arachnids. Prey is definately a spotted cucumber beetle.

Prey might be
Spotted Cucumber Beetle - Diabrotica undecimpunctata.
