I supposed the English name is Mantid...correct?

The small Black hair in the picture coming from a poor Bombo...I do not know if the Italian name is the same in English...but is like a Bee but with Hair Black and White...

Bye

In English the name for this is Praying Mantis, and the poor creature it enjoyed for dinner was I suspect a bumblebee. It looks very pleased with itself.
