A jumping spider catches its prey

While looking for critters and flowers to photograph today, I spied this spider and its meal lurking under a black-eyed Susan. When I turned the flower over to get a better look, the spider conveniently climbed to the top of the flower to pose for a shot. Kind of like a hunter posing with its kill… Not sure of the butterfly ID—perhaps a pearl crescent or a checkerspot?
