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.
By Ogden Nash (1902 – 1971)

oh wow I almost imagine it pulling some kung fu haha!
I moved him onto a green leaf for more pictures Andy. Hours later he was still there. I could see him looking at me though.
That’s so cool that it trusted you to move him for the shot 🙂
Either that or freaked out.
Nah, Surely not by a gentle hand 😀
Love the picture.
Thank you so much Sherry. Evidently Flickr did also and it was explored. Woo Hoo!
You are too kind. Thank you so much Stephen.
What a fabulous picture! 👍
Isn’t he the coolest dude? A true extra terrestrial.
Beautiful portrait – he’s absolutely glorious!😀
I was so lucky as he just sat there all chilled. Thanks Joanne.
