If I remember correctly, this was the first—or maybe second—time I have seen a Praying Mantis in my young 37-years. Times are tough right now and our family could use a lot of “prayers”. Call me kooky, but is this a coincidence or a sign from the powers that be?
I haven’t brought my camera to work in forever so it’s crazy that I decided to bring it yesterday… Just wish I had my telephoto lens instead of my wide angle.
What an awesome creature! This is definitely one insect I’m not afraid of—that is until it decides to fly at my legs unexpectedly. 🙂
