      Thank you for your explanation Scott, it's such an incredible photo hence the question. Do you just have the one mantis?

      Jaff's This is the only Budwing I have. I had 6 more Ghost mantises, but after a female ate a male yesterday, I am now down to 5. I've had them for a few months and to my astonishment, that has been my only loss.

      Wow. I didn't know that they were so fast! I was just watching your video. That's crazy!!! This is a super interesting photo though and I like the other fish in the bowl staring at the mantis... Crazy stuff.

      2nd one. Both are incredible!!! are you actually feeding your pet mantis?

      Lol and oooo! love your creative mind, this shot really shows these guys will eat anything, well till they are full and i would guess a fish head will fill most adult mantids lol. first shot works for me but the second has a better audience.
