Hungry Mantis

I was out shooting some abandoned buildings when I came across a big praying mantis sitting patiently by a well, waiting for other insects to come along in search of some water. Several dragonflies came by for a drink, and this particular one ended up being a meal. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the dragonfly weighed a third as much as the mantis pictured. This didn't stop him from consuming the whole, unfortunate being in less than five minutes.
