praying mantis

Found this little guy jumping through the weeds that I was hacking today and came back to take his picture. I've seen a couple of them here in the last few days. I like being this close to nature again. Much better than cities.

Nice pic! A person does not always get this close to capture a shot of one. Just remember the female knocks off the male when she is through with him! :>)

@Dad: Ha, yup. He/she wasn't too big, though, and seemed to like (or at least tolerate) crawling on my hand for a while.
