I was gathering zinnia seeds when I noticed a clicking sound and it seemed to be coming from this. Beautiful insect. All I know is they are carnivorous and predators that eat other bugs. Anyone know much about them? What do they like to eat?

|They are basically a positive garden bug as they often prey on destructive insects, however they're not adverse to knocking off a butterfly or moth.|
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

|or hummingbird |
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

|That's a male Carolina mantis. Too small to catch a hummingbird, you must be thinking of the Chinese or European mantis.|

|And they think nothing of eating each other as in being cannibalistic........when I find them in my gardens I'm thrilled beyond words........as they eat so many of the "yech" species..........|
