praying mantis




I led this backyard visitor into a cardboard box for a short photo shoot. He wasn't very happy with me; he kept giving me the evil eye. How can a four-inch-long insect be so intimidating? I set him free and he stalked away into the grass.

Aren't the larger of the species usually the females? That would go with the stink eye behavior.

Très belles photos de Mante Religieuse, c'est amusant, en français, nous l'appelons donc la "religiouse manti" et en anglais, c'est la "Mante priante" ;)
