Praying Mantis Catches a Hummingbird

Photo: Sharon Fullingim

National Geographic reader Sharon Fullingim took this fantastic photo of a praying mantis catching a hummingbird (and believe it or not, this isn't the first time we've featured such a story). Moral of the story? Don't ever mess with a praying mantis.

From the National Geographic user submitted Daily Dozen (September - Week 1, no direct URL I'm afraid) - Thanks Marilyn!
