That is a huge fly for a tiny mantis! Did he/she manage to finish it? I love the way it still has its eye on you!
Yes it ate it all and even caught it by itself as well

I can verify this - I caught the fly in a net and popped it in its mesh cage, I wasnt sure if he would manage and was on the verge of taking the fly out as I was concerned that my mantis might end up injured - but he was fierce and brutal - he ate the whole fly.
