Carnage in the Back Yard

One of our praying mantis crew in the back yard found a Monarch butterfly on a milkweed plant and invited the unsuspecting butterfly to lunch.

Unbeknowst to the butterfly, succulent butterfly guts were the main menu. So there, interlopers in the praying mantis territory!

This is one more reason why planting native plants is important. We want to make sure that butterflies taste yummy to those beautiful praying mantis.

Now we just have to find out who eats the praying mantis!
