Cooper's hawk (Accipiter cooperii) ~ A crow-sized hawk (males can be smaller), blue-gray on the back & head, with horizontal orange barring on the breast & belly (mature). *Very* similar to sharp-shinned hawk. Extremely fast, agile flier through thick canopies, preys on small to medium birds & occasionally small mammals. Year-round in Arkansas.
A mantis appears to have struck up an very unlikely friendship with a tiny insect. Photographer Nordin Seruyan took several shots of the unusual pairing after finding them in his back garden in Borneo, Indonesia
