Mantis vs. Sceliphron on Nepenthes bicalcarata.
 
The digger wasp Sceliphron caementarium captures spiders for its brood, so it is quite fortified; however, the adult wasps feed on vegetarian food. These wasps are quite crazy about the nectar on our N. bicalcarata couple.

A couple of spontaneously intruded praying mantises lurks from their branches below our greenhouse roof, which inevitably leads to an encounter of the predatory insects. Who is going to become the booty?

Here the shreds fly: Exciting pictures from our CP-greenhouse with extra spooky soundtrack. Enjoy!
