Friday 5: Mealtime

I'm a big, nature-loving softie. Still, predation is pretty cool. It's part of nature, after all. I've mentioned it here and included it in sets like this or this. Here are five more scenes I found gorgeous rather than grisly. (Your mileage, as always, will vary. My husband says if you're not me, you'll probably lean toward grisly. But he thinks I'm weird to eat during medical dramas too.)

Mantis on spider:

Heron on fish:

Orb weaver on cicada:

Red-tailed pennant dragonfly on mating damselflies (twin-wrapped snack pack?):

Milkweed bugs on cockroach:

Now then ... Who's hungry?

Everybody's gotta eat. There's nothing 'cruel' about doing what's required to find your dinner. Your photographs are fabulous! Keep up the good work.

No vegetarians here!
I like the way the mantis glances at you...
