  1. Beautiful mantis! He looks so tickled to have her sitting there, too.Talk about big: once, stopping at a gas station in Kentucky, I saw a mantis that was, no exaggeration, the length of my forearm. I measured it against my arm, and it stood there calmly and watched me while I did it. It had a hurt leg, and was slowly making its way up the gas pump. The thing was huge, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was indeed looking at me, that it was large enough to recognize me as another creature instead of just an obstacle along its path.

  2. Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth. I am smiling from the inside reading your post. For some reason it just made me happy. 🙂

  3. Fantastic mantis! I think these are incredible creatures. They get inside our classrooms in the fall and the students “rescue” them by putting them into the vines outside the windows. They definitely look like the model for all those aliens we see in movies!
