When i was a Mo. State Water Patrolman on Table Rock Lake i seen alot of wild life in action. Moma duck would take her ducklings for a swim around boat docks, and many times i've seen big bass attack and swallow them hole. :o. I was back in a cove eating my lunch when a yellow canary lite on a brush pile to get a drink when about a 6lb. bass came out of the water and grabbed it :o. I don't know why but that struck me funny, and almost choked to death on my sandwich. I was thinking what went through that little birds mind, like" What Happened? i was only getting a drink". Jack

There's lots of examples on google and youtube of a praying mantis eating a hummingbird, too.

Awe Mama, some people just need a lot of critters to take care of.

 I have a husband, bees, a dog, a kitty down town that I feed, and a son that lands back home quite often ~  ;)
