Harvestman scavenges dead Millipede

Hi Milosh,
You did not provide much background on this photograph, so we will speculate.  This is not a Spider.  It is a Harvestman or Daddy-Long-Legs in the Arachnid order Opiliones.  Harvestmen are scavengers that will eat dead creatures as well as plant material.  It appears the Millipede in this photo was a casualty of some accident and the Harvestman appears to be feeding upon the corpse.
