As requested, but very late, here is the praying mantis that caught and ate a hummingbird last year on my back porch.
Oh my goodness - Bjorn, would you mind if I posted the link in a newsgroup I participate in (alt.binaries.pictures.gardens)? They're always posting hummingbird pix there - this one takes the cake!

Please feel free to Ann.
Untill I happened upon this, I would of never said it was possible. Just the day or two earlier I had commented to my wife that the mantis was probably after the occasional bee or fly that visited the feeder. It had been hanging about for a few days. Boy was I wrong!
