praying mantis on our door last saturday night

the last time I saw one of these guys he was expertly hidden in our potted plant outside in our back yard. I think this one got tired of all my picture taking because I swear he flipped me the bird as he started moving up the door. nah, I'm just kidding - I am sure he is just waving goodbye as he happily went for the spider nest under our eaves. besides, I think seeing one means good luck especially since when I opened the door, he flew at me & landed on my chest. 
yes, it was a very exciting saturday night.

Just a moment to wonder for it which colors! ;)

Great shot .... I do believe I would have jumped and screamed not necessarily in that order if it had jumped onto me

Bibi said...

I think these creatures are amazing. Good shot.
