用法说明
“螳螂捕蝉,黄雀在后”是说螳螂在捕蝉的时候,不知道黄雀在它后面正要吃它。这句话比喻人只顾贪图眼前的利益,没有顾忌背后隐伏着的祸患。
“螳螂捕蝉,黄雀在后” means the mantis doesn’t know the siskin behind it is going to eat it while it is catching the cicada. It is a metaphor which means a person only seeks immediate interests, and holds no scruples about the hidden trouble behind.
