The title says it all. A large female preying mantid almost ready to produce her egg case has one last meal. European wasps, the bullys of the insect world. Insect mimicry with hover flys vying for the same sweet nectars during a summer day. The amazing thing is if only the wasp "knew" how vulnerable the praying mantis is, it could in numbers easily sting it to death..........but it doesn't and the answer lies in the camouflage strategy of the mantis and how the wasp actually visualizes the mantis amongst the foliage. The mantis is not "seen" as a threat to the wasp.
Enjoy
It's gruesome so beware!
