Wow, Those are great photos! I always find these amazing beings jaw-dropping. I still remember the first time I saw one as a child. It really opened my eyes to more wonders of the world, expanded my entire view of it. Ogden Nash got it right in his view of them. They seem other-worldly.

Hello! Such amazing pictures of a praying mantishave I never seen before! It's really a special animal. My son (he's a scientist) told me about a video on Youtube where a mantis takes a humming bird. I don't want to watch it - I just wanted to tell you. I didn't know it could be so dangerous.
I saw your previous post with the poor little bird. I would also have taken it from the cat. I'll bet the cat looked astonished! Although the bird looks wounded it might be well again.
