Look closely. See that huge praying mantis perched on the edge of our rain gauge? Yeah. That thing was in our backyard. Near our bedroom window.
The guys discovered him while they were mowing the grass. You can see GD back there (on the left) looking curious, in a horrified way. And MK looking like he’s about to bolt if the thing moves one inch.
The husband took an 11 second video of the thing moving it’s head in a robotic fashion if you’re interested.
Creepy bug. *shudder*
