Faces of Death XXIII: Mantis v. Honeybee!!!
Oct 31, 2012

Ok, so I was taking some pictures of this mantis at lunch and (s)he seemed nice enough - even posed for my camera

I went back a few hours later, and that gentle mantis was going medieval on this honeybee!  It was awesome!

I took about 100 pictures of the carnage and witnessed the complete consumption of the prey (except for the legs and wings, which the mantis threw away) . . . . .

. . . . until all that was left was the stinger!

Final Score:  Mantis 1, Honeybee Gone
