  1. During the almost 2 hours I spent with this Mantis he/she ate two moths and about 8 bees. The small flys that apparently clean up were also an occasional bite,

    I have been looking in this garden for a Praying Mantis as I had seen them in the past. This is the first time I have been able to observe one for any length of time. Thier hunting methods are truly amazing
    I like this one because of the " expression" on his face
    Hope you like it, Vince
