I am looking for prey

The mantis lurks prey on a branch of Prunus armeniaca. These insects used to be common in gardens, but their population has been very small in recent years.

A great photo capture. Is it a friend or foe in the garden seems to be debatable, but is the perfect fit for the banner.

Well they don't discriminate. I saw one grab off a bee and eat it the same way, kind of like an eagle with a fish. Start at the head and work down to the tail.
