From Beginning to End

I came across a large probably female praying mantis in the bog in Charlestown Meadows just as she was finishing a little skipper butterfly.  In front of her was a little wildflower with an inchworm exploring the flower.  The mantis finished her butterfly, hunched over the flower, grabbed the inchworm in a flash, ate it up in a flash and then cleaned her extraordinarily sharp fingernails.
