± 7 cm - Female mantis with bee.
Found on lavender in garden. Also spot an egg sac close by.

Indeed C.Sydes, when ever one thinks... aah nothing interesting will be happening in the garden... a mantis catches a bee.... ;)
infuriating for you, but you caught the finale
Thank you Johan! I was outside without my camera when the action started! I had to run and just got the pics as she was descending into the depths of the lavender bush!
