I found this crab spider and mating soldier beetles in amonsgt the grass. Despite the spider having its fangs well and truely embedded in the female the male soldier beetle clearly wasn't giving up! By moving myself around them so as to not disturb the spider, I managed to get the spider head on and if you look closely at the female soldier beetle you can see the "black heart" marking.
