2022—It’s a Gnatcatcher with a Gnat, or Is It?

When I first looked at this photograph of a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher that I took at Magee Marsh a couple of days ago, I thought that the Gnatcatcher had caught a gnat. As their name implies, Gnatcatchers catch gnats. But on closer inspection, I believe this could br a newly hatched Praying Mantis Nymph. Praying Mantises hatch as nymphs in the adult form, but at less than an of an 1/8 inch in size. I think I can see the front praying legs, the head, and the rear legs all protruding from the beak of this tiny bird.
