Mantis



Spotted this little fella on our way to church last Sunday.    Zoë was scared of it and didn’t even want to go past this guy.  We had to hold her hand and shield her before she would even move.  He did look a little bit scary.  When I was trying to take pictures of him, he was actually swivelling his body around following me whenever I moved.  A bit creepy.

Aaaaaaaah - a cute alien!

Oh wait, maybe I should save my shouting for the scary aliens..?

Yeah, I´ll do just that. And I can feel that you´re OK with that decision. :-D

They are beautiful but also creep me out! I had one snatch at my ankle once in the grass. CREEPY.
I give you lots of points for snapping it's picture. It really is a great shot :)
