Predation

Just some cool shots I wanted to share, of a praying mantis taking advantage of the fact that security lights on buildings bring in a lot of insects. It managed to catch a yummy looking mayfly.

Other black-light visitors

These large mayflies were decorating my black-lighting sheet well into the day, even the birds were reluctant to pick them off.  I’m thinking Hexagenia sp.?
