Preying Mantises are truly apex predators, in their world. I have seen pictures of them devouring hummingbirds, but always kind of thought that must be highly unusual.
Well, it turns out, it is not unusual at all, but fairly common for larger mantis to capture and eat hummingbirds. Think of the physical stress the mantis reacts to when it grabs a flying hummingbird out of the air - I am amazed it doesn't go for an aerial ride, which suggests to me that the mantis has done this enough to know what to expect, it has experience.
Google has pages of this kind of material- who knew!?
