The other day, just after I woke up, Mr Mantis came by. I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen a Praying Mantis, up close, in my life but it’s not too many. I’m also not sure if this is really a Mr Mantis or Ms. Mantis either ;-). I’m afraid these images aren’t my best but… These Mantis’ are strangely intriguing.
From what I’ve learned; of the three Mantis’ that reside in the United States only one is native, the Carolina Mantis. The other two were introduced from Europe and China, in the last century.
