On entomology

So, this morning the LA and I were going out to breakfast, and when we exited, we found on the porch a visitor.

This chap was just sat there, so I snapped some photos of him.

I should note that he was BIG. That rail is about eight inches wide.


  1. Wowzer. That's one big bug.

  2. That is a praying mantis. A very good bug to have around because it keeps the bad bugs away.

  3. I know it's a praying mantis. It's also oddly beautiful.
