Wordless Wednesday – Praying Mantis

Want to play?

Praying Mantis

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*

  1. They are totally harmless and perform a very useful purpose in the food chain. They look creepy but actually are created in great symmetry and with some fantastic lines!

  2. I hope you didn’t kill it. They’re really gross-looking, but they eat spiders — that’s what I like about them!

  3. ….and I thought the saying goes “Everything in Texas is bigger”…but holy cow. This is HUGE!!!!!

    Mine’s posted. Dropb by, won’t you? Have a great day.
