Really cool photo, I keep praying mantis and see them eat stuff like this all the time. They also eat goldfish too, but not very often only as a treat. I place the fish in a shallow bowl of water and watch the insect fish it out its really cool.

I love how it`s taken, like, half a bite out of the eye. And how the eye is still maintaining itself, even with the whole in it...

Although, I guess there are, like, twenty million mini-eyes, so it doesn`t really matter.

i like how the fly looks like it has eggshell skin, which is super cool. Exoskeletons rock.

Yeah somethings wrong here. That is either one small mantis and one giant fly or this is photoshopped.

Heehee. Where I`m going, those things are everywhere.

They`re one of the few things the damn Brown Snake hasn`t either endangered or driven completely off the island because they can fight back.

Saw one fighting a two foot baby snake and holding its own just fine. Three or more will occasionally gang up on a Banana Spider and share a meal. The mantis is one truly badass bug. :-)
