Heard a cardinal chirping like crazy, and I thought it was hoping to get some more birdseed. When I went over there with food, the cardinal flew away but on the ground I was surprised to find this praying mantis in full frontal attack mode. Even more surprising was a number of bird feathers on the ground! Looks like the mantis was certainly holding its own or better in the battle against the bird!
