sinobug: GREED. This large ambidextrous mantis was attracted to my MV moth light. It had almost demolished the beetle in the right claw, when this moth (which I was hoping to photograph) got too close and it was snapped up in the left claw. Minutes later, both carcasses were abandoned in preference for a huge silk moth. Pu’er, Yunnan, China. Click the image to see more Chinese praying mantids on my Flickr site…..
