Spider with liquid oozing out its mouth

This is another shot of the same spider, taken a few moments after the picture in the previous post. It seems like some kind of yellowish liquid is oozing out of the spider's mouth. My instinct say it's venom, but it can also be digestive juices that spiders use to liquefy their prey.

Either way, it seemed to have vomited the liquid out. In fear or in defense? I'm not sure. Or maybe the photographer looked so unappealing even a spider would throw up after looking at him.

Anyone knows what this spider is doing? Spider experts? Peter Parker? Hmmm?
