Will you bee mine?

This mantis was just hanging out on the flower when the bee arrived. I thought I'd get to see some predation in action, but the mantis decided to back off, the wimp.

WOW smile

That's an excellent image. The detail is amazing and getting both insects at once is a real treat. So, I guess the mantis wasn't intested in participating in Nat Geo's Bug Wars.

And the mantis said, "Whoa, that's too big to be an aphid!" Great image, John. Thanks for posting.
