So… we were aware larger Praying Mantis have been known to attack Hummingbirds, there are even (gross) videos. We had seen a Mantis near our feeders so were trying to chase him off.
Then one afternoon the vines made noise and the arbor leaves shook.
Of course we quickly went to check for a Mantis. What we found was a Cicada caught by the Mantis.
No additional details, a few images in a gallery below. Nature is not always pretty.

Cicada are not all that much smaller than a Hummingbird. Depending on where you live it may be something to watch for.
