I really thought these two critters were happily enjoying a meal together, chomping away on a tasty grasshopper, but after taking these images and then sitting back to watch the feast, the next thing I knew was that the wasp had taken off into the air with half the hopper hanging from his jaws Smile

I'm feeling a little stronger now, so hopefully I can get back into the full swing of ePZ next week.

You witness THE most interesting stuff, Carol. Amazing clarity and detail you've capured here, by the way. That mantis looks well fat.
