Praying Mantis on the side of our Garage

Praying Mantis on Garage Wall_edited-1_wm

I couldn’t believe it when I saw him.  He’s three to four inches long.  Biggest one I’ve seen in years.  The picture doesn’t really represent his size.  He was giving me the once over, I’ll tell you.

Praying Mantis Head down on our back Deck Screen


This beauty was working our back sliding door screen the other day.  There was another one a few feet away that was completely brownish in color.  I know they do change color to match their surroundings.  The one in the above image had the whiteish/ silver color on its back as you see. (that is not sunlight – just to clarify.)
