    I had a close look with pscs2 and from a technical pov, I think it has been altered.

    There are videos on youtube that show praying mantises eating humming birds so I see no reason for this to be photoshopped other than to improve the image, but not edit the content.

    I thought this one was shopped too but its the real thing. Fox grabs rabbit then eagle grabs fox.

    yeah I think the Eagle is making sure he/she gets a two for one. :)

    It looks like the fox is pissing himself.

    On another note, I have seen several video of manti's (mantii?) killing and eating humming birds.

    The fox gets loose and drops back to the ground.

    Well that is a surprise! Never thought a mantis would be strong enough to take something that large.

    Yep...and IIRC, that was not a full grown fox.

    A praying mantis is not venomous, so how did it disable the hummingbird?

    From the youtube video,it looks like the mantis goes for the throat. Must have very strong mandibles.

    Isn't it the Mantis female that clips the head off a male once done mating? Yeah, I'd say there's some strength there.

    pickled egg Works with puppies, too

    Or mantis females are naturally attracted to males with steeltoe-esque necks. ;)
