Yikes, talk about getting your head bitten off! While the photographer initially meant to photograph a mantis on its leafy perch, little did he know that another one was lurking in the background. The guest ate the subject, leading to an interesting capture of mantis behaviour. Mantises are generalists and ambush predators and feed on various arthropod species, including some of their own.
