A Praying Mantis with Attitude!

Look who was tapping at our front door! This little guy (well not too little for the bug world)! I haven't seen a praying mantis since I was a kid. This little guy had some attitude! He was FAST! I couldn't believe it, he turned his head, looked at me, & then he jumped at me and scared me half to death! I chased him and got a couple good pictures. Then I tried to save him from the kids next door and he had his own escape plan-I lost him! Hope he was fast enough to avoid them! (My letting out a hoot when he jumped at me sparked their curiosity). I got a couple of cool photos...I bet a photo of me jumping and screaming when he lunged at me would have been a lot funnier though!!
