Hummingbirds, praying mantis, bees at Texas feeder


This video from the USA says about itself:

Praying Mantis Visits Hummingbird Feeder In West Texas – June 25, 2020

A praying mantis drops down to the hummingbird feeders and scuttles from port to port, likely in search of an insect [bee] meal. In rare cases, larger mantids have been documented staking out hummingbird feeders and preying on the birds that visit, but this individual is too small to be a risk to the birds.
