Praying mantis

Praying mantis

This "little" guy hangs out in our front yard quite a bit. Here he was just walking along the driveway. I actually don't know if it's a he or she; how can one tell? Anybody? There is also a green one that I am still trying to get a good shot of to post. It hangs out on our plumeria, which is about to bloom. We have lots of late bloomers in our yard; like the plumeria and esperanza...they always bloom much later than other people's plants.

Greetings, Thien,

You have so much detail in this photo. It's a pleasure to be able to look and really see this marvel.

Nice capture. I haven't seen one of these in a long time. I'd like to see a walking stick again too.

Thank you all. It's so fun to be in the DP community again. I've missed you guys.

This little guy is kind of cute but any bigger and that would definitely be double eeeeeks!

These things always give me the willies, they look so wicked. We get them big and the walking sticks are huge out here too, like the spiders and crickets and the vultures/buzzards, and every other piece of critter etc.
