|European hornet beats mantis. It looks like a battle, but actually mantis has no chance - he's absolutely paralized by the hornet's sting|

Awww.. I hate to see a mantis get hurt, but these are great action pictures. Real world pictures. The picture on the right is a little dark from your shadow, but great work none the less! Thanks for posting!

Beautifully done! I really enjoy the capture of insects and "things" in their real life environment. This is very good. Thank you.
I would have lightened the right picture some to see the differentiation.
So this is what a hornet looks like.I always thought they were more like those paper wasps.I'm not too keen on wasps and hornets..(Fell in a couple of big nests as a kid)
Great couple of images here though.Good capture.

Superb pictures Alex! I was in Partenit last summer, searched long for mantis but without success. Great action post!
