Last week I received a phone call from my neighbor who said,”come over…I have something in my backyard for you to see”!

So my camera and I went down the street and saw the most interesting creature. A male praying mantis.  I had never seen a male one before and thought that maybe this was another creature.  It looked just like the female only brown.  It did have a long bright green streak on it’s belly.

I was intrigued and went to learn more about the infamous Praying Mantis.

Have a look at pictures that I took in her backyard and here’s the link to Wikipedia….
