Death in the Garden

The sun broke out for a few hours yesterday and I went out front to do some pruning. There was a strange twig protruding from the rosemary and on closer inspection, it was a preying mantis with a freshly caught bee. It took less than five minutes to devour her. By the time I returned with the camera, half her body was gone.
The rest of the garden is looking great but there are probably equal horrors taking place beneath the beautiful facade.
