Did You Know One of the Hummingbirds' Predators is the Praying Mantis?
A couple of years ago, I snapped this and other photos, thinking the subject matter was cute - it's not! The fact is that praying mantis will patiently wait, as in the case of this photo, for the opportunity to snatch & devour an unknowing hummingbird. No birds were harmed in this scenario, and I am now much more in the know. While praying mantis can be a beneficial insect against moths, mosquitoes, aphids & flies, be watchful of them around your hummingbird feeders!
