Praying Mantis

This is one of the most interesting insects I have been able to photograph.

The wonderful life of a Praying Mantis… well a short one. According to some websites, the praying mantis only lives for about a year, as the female can lay hundreds of eggs she may also eat the male during or after mating!

However, they are pretty cool to photograph!
