    A couple summers ago I spotted this butterfly and was wondering why it was situated in the position it was. &nbsp;As I looked closer I saw the mantis so I ran inside and grabbed the camera. &nbsp;Later I was thinking I should have hung around and got a shot of him eating it but aren't we all Monday morning quarterbacks at times?<br><br>Jerry<br><br>[​IMG]

    Quite embarrassing to say the least. I went back to correct something and accidentally posted this twice. I wanted to delete one of them but don't know how. If a moderator sees this please delete one of these. Thank you.

    Cool capture! I love the look the mantis is giving you like, "Hey, get away from my breakfast!"

    I don't know, I was thinking he looked more like, "Back off dude, or you might be NEXT..." :lol:

    Nice capture, Jerry!

    Great capture, Jerry. She seemed reluctant to share her catch.

    Thanks everyone for commenting. Wonder if a butterfly is what this mantis was "praying" for.;)
