Mantis



Mantis, originally uploaded by smallfox2.

Praying Mantis in our back yard – quite big! About the length of my hand. Ladypuss spotted it first and I had to save it from her – for my trouble she dug her claw into me.

But what a beautiful creature this is. I’m not normally good with insects but there’s something about mantises that makes them different for me.

I just took this – it is night so I had to use the flash which I don’t really like (I never like that harsh light) but it was the only way to get a shot.
