mantis vs. cicada

Yesterday I investigated the buzzing of a Cicada in a peach tree only to find it had been caught by a Praying Mantis. It's hard to see in this photo but the Mantis is hanging down and has the brown Cicada in its grip. The video below might show the battle better. Glad to have a growing population of Praying Mantis in the garden.
