Praying Mantis vs Bee

Shot I took of a praying mantis seconds after catching a bee. You can see he’s alread started eating it. There’s a plant in the way, but I think the bee is still trying to sting him at this point.

    I adore it. Being eaten alive by a mantis is probably the only acceptable death to me.

    Only if she has sex with you first.

    But she doesn’t have sex with everything before she eats it. I feel like I have the potential to be just a snack.

    I wish that there were Orchid Mantises by where I live
