Praying Mantis

One day when I arrived at F/Stop Camera Corp., I found three baby praying mantis on the front of the building.  I'd pick them off carefully and put them in some nearby bushes.  They instantly disappeared.  The next day there was one more.  Hopefully the birds tend to find them. - Margaret Albert

The Praying mantis is a carnivorous insect that takes up a deceptively humble posture when it is searching for food. At rest, the mantis' front forelegs are held together in a posture resembling prayer or deep thought. These front legs are equipped with rows of sharp spikes that the mantis uses to hold its prey.
