Attack of the Mantis in 3D

by Pete Fitzgetald August. 21, 2018 405 views

Say hi to my buddy Bill, He has come to visit me and I thought I would snap some shots, I wish I had my real camera, but this IPhone does a good job. I have not seen a preying mantis in a couple of decades.

Has to be one of the coolest Bug EVER

Insects make me uncomfortable, 
but Pete, you made them look half-friendly (Heh)
so I wondered, why does your buddy Bill
and beings like him make me feel prickly
and vulnerable?

for something that looks so mean, it felt very vulnerable in my hand when I moved him to a bush out of harms way

Humanity must thank you
for improving our relations
with all beings of the praying mantis'
