The Praying Mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer ~ and the enhanced facial features of this photo make it look almost human. My favorite bug ever!
Our good and lucky bugs, the ones we learned to treat like gems and recite poetry to. "Ladybug, ladybug, fly away gone. Your house is on fire and your children are home." Did a ladybug ever land on you?
