The Quiet Stalker

Hanging out in the summer garden this silent stalker of ants and other insects was making a good living.

I watched as it grabbed and devoured a tasty morsel that tried to crawl by; the whole deed done with those "prayer like" appendages.   

The Praying Mantis, a close relative of the cockroach,  preys on the meat of other insects.
