praying mantis prey
3

The wasp was flying around so much, I didn't think there would be any chance of a photo.

It landed on this blade of grass just long enough.

I think it is a small sand wasp.

The mantis nymph must have still been struggling because the wasp took time to sting it again.

It was the greatest of good luck that the wasp stayed in focus as it took off.

It may not sound like much but that was my biggest thrill for the day.
