Preying Mantis Style by shadowfire-x Preying Mantis Style by shadowfire-x
A brown mantis I found while mowing. It was rather jumpy.

Cute shot, looks like it was shy!
I love grasshoppers, but never figured out why I don't like praying mantids.. Don't they like bite?

I find handling either mantids or grasshoppers a bit difficult.. X3 They both bite and scratch!

I held many grasshoppers, and so far none have bitten me yet :)

Thank you! <3 A lot of people seem to really like mantids.. XD They ARE pretty sweet, though.

I've always liked them because, unlike other bugs, they're not super tiny and they don't try to scurry up your shirt or something, plus they don't bite and they just look awesome. XP

Also I saw an episode of Croc Hunter once where Steve picked one up off the road to move it, and it "punched" him. XD I thought that was like the coolest thing ever.

He looks... like he has so much personality! Seriously! I love this picture. ^^ The detail I can see is so awesome here. I love how his head is turned to the side like that...

I know =3. It's meant to be a play on words, since mantises like to "prey" on things. =D
