Antics.....

.....on the astrantia flower......

A juvenile praying mantis ready to attack a honey bee as it worked it's away around the flower. The closer the bee came the more agitated the manis became until he lunged at the bee who was three times his size - I was impressed! The bee flew away to another flower and the mantis settled down to continue sunbathing, he was only 1cm in length.
wow great story and a super image! fav
