Daddy Long Legs and Friend

I was stalking a Daddy Long Legs on my patio when I spotted additional movement on his perch.

The spider had been all around the stem and leaves of this plant that I think is Melissa Balm; the debris to the the right of the Leaf-hopper is a dropped flower.

Whatever signal the Leafhopper was sending was lost on me and the spider. Maybe the signal was for the flower.
