Praying Mantis

Some recent shots from outside my house in Asheville. We've been seeing quite a lot of these guys around these days. They seem to particularly enjoy my watermelons, my pepper plant, and the local furniture.


  1. Hiya Pancho,

    I'm making the rounds just in case you didn't get an email invitation. Our email database is spotty at best.

    The Extravablogiversapaloozathon 2008 is September 27th, and we're hoping every area blogger will come!

    Party Info here.

  2. Wait a minute, is that praying mantis the size of a squirrel or is it a trick of perspective? Because I would not be able to sleep at night knowing those things were out there. Makes the whole biting heads off before mating thing even scarier.
