Thank you James, Eileen, Bernard and Kathy. I like mantises for their getting rid of insect pests, but I was certainly a little disappointed when I saw this happen. However, that's Nature and I was lucky, from a photographic pov, to be there.

Sometimes things turn out even better than we'd hoped, though I agree, not for the bee. This mantis is a gravid female, preparing to lay her eggs; that would give her a hearty appetite. Thanks for sharing this lucky catch, John!
