|Here are some of the praying mantises of the summer of 2019.|
|This one is doing a good job of blending in.|

|A poem by Ogden Nash:|
From whence arrived the praying mantis?
From outer space or lost Atlantis?
glimpse the grin, green metal mug
at masks the pseudo-saintly bug,
Orthropterous, also carnivorous,
And faintly whisper, Lord deliver us.
|And this. Gotta love a little mantis art, right?|
