I found this praying mantis hanging out at the edge of our driveway today.
This insect fascinates me... and scares me.
Whenever I encounter them, they always seem to be aware of me
before I am aware of them.
This is the only insect that can turn its head from side to side 180 degrees.
Eek, do you see him looking at me?
And also, I find it a bit disturbing when an insect not only eats insects,
but also may eat mice, lizards or beautiful hummingbirds!!!
Here's a u-tube clip of a praying mantis attacking a hummingbird.
Is the praying mantis creeping YOU out yet?
