Praying Mantis Eats Spider

Osiyo my friends…that means Hello in Cherokee.  I hope this post finds everyone well, healthy and happy…

So the story goes like this.  My twin boys and I are at the park, we spot a lovely cool green praying mantis, we each take turns in holding it, they are so very cool and spiritual, we love them and care for them with great love.  After spending time holding it, I placed it in a large tree in which it climbed up to about 7 feet high.  Then we noticed this massive spooky spider, something we dislike very much, but it was cool and I got some photos of it.  So, the spider was at the bottom of the tree, at least 7 feet from the praying mantis, I was taking photos of it, then all of a sudden it was gone.  Disappeared.  I looked up, and amazing at it was, the spider was in the arms of the praying mantis.  The spider must have seen the praying mantis and thought, hey, there’s food, but a mistake the spider made was the end of its life.  As the praying mantis held the spider, I watched in amazement the praying mantis eating each of the spiders legs first before it consumed the body of the spider…nature at its finest…WOW.  So here are some captures of the praying mantis, the spider and the praying mantis eating away at the spider…Yikes my friends, its grand to be human!
