PRAYING MANTID

An unusual visitor outside my kitchen door:

I watched this praying mantid as it slowly made its way from the harsh sun into the cool shade of some succulents.

I thought it was interesting to see its face – especially the mouth.

    • That reminds me of the poem by Ogden Nash:

      From whence arrived the praying mantis?
      From outer space, or lost Atlantis?
      glimpse the grin, green metal mug
      at masks the pseudo-saintly bug,
      Orthopterous, also carnivorous,
      And faintly whisper, Lord deliver us.
