timid workers foraging on leaves. two females were also seen with the workers, one just wandering near the workers and another which seemed to have a deformed wing directly following a worker like a tandem running sort of behavior. I prefer making observations by colonies so I usually count founding queen a separate observation. but since these ants seemed to have direct associations with the workers and *quadripunctatus*group species are known for dependent colony founding and queens wandering on foraging trails I leave the queens all in one observation.

Description

European Mantis with a bee in her left, and a wasp in her right foreleg…

How this came to be: I had been on the look-out for a flowering plant that was attracting a wide variety of pollinators. Apparently, so was this Mantis. I found a Saw-toothed Goldenbush with Skippers, a Gray Hairstreak, Western Honey Bees, and Sweat Bees, and started to take a few pictures of the various visitors to the tiny Goldenbush flowers. I suddenly heard a high-pitched, panicky buzz sound, like from a fly who got caught in a trap, searched the plant to find its source, and discovered the Mantis holding a bee in her front legs. As the Mantis started to eat her prey, she was attacked by several Yellowjacket wasps. I was amazed how gutsy these wasps behaved around the much larger Mantis. One was even holding on to the Mantis’ head and tried to rip a piece of bee meat from her mouth. Maybe the wasps felt safe because the Mantis was holding the bee with both forelegs - but not for long. The Mantis ate the bee’s head and with that freed her right foreleg, and grabbed the next wasp that came too close. With two pieces of prey in the Mantis’ possession, she became even more attractive to the voracious wasps. Eventually, the Mantis moved deeper into the Goldenbush, and away from my P.O.V. (For the Western Yellowjackets: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/58501408.)

Coincidentally, I had seen a European Mantis prey on a Western Honey Bee the day before (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/58386031). I was spending some time around a patch of Coastal Wild Buckwheat, to add paired-up plant/pollinator observations to https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/california-pollination-project. Sticking around a patch for a while reveals the anti-pollinators too, insects large and small (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/58335578) that prey on other insects.

  • Took the photo close by the Chelsea River, it was climbing on top of a plant.
  • It was a bug that I have not seen before in the area.
  • The bug is very small being about 13-15 millimeters

-The color of the bug in my view is orange, black, brown, and it has small white spots in the back or the butt if you zoom in the pictures.

  • 6 legs
  • Is a species of "seed bugs"
  • Its subfamily is Lygaeidae
