Praying Mantis Eats Hummingbird

Praying Mantis Eats Hummingbird (Bird Watcher's Digest): "The other day while I was working in the yard my son urgently called to me. 'Dad, a praying mantis caught a hummingbird!'

Not sure what to expect, but knowing my son is not one to make things up, I came running to see for myself. By the time I arrived it was too late for the poor hummer and my scientifically minded son had already begun taking pictures and studying the scene."
