Carol you must add a Santa hat to this mantis and make this your Christmas card. If I were not going out on a photo shoot today I'd do it for you!

Snap LOL

your house sounds like mine - safe haven for every creepy crawly thing known to mankind. I have a spider in the bathroom and in the bedroom who sadly are not so cooperative about photoshoots.

Great idea!

Glad the houe is a miniature - just think of the consequences if it was real size and the mantis was a giant!!!!!!!!!!

V2 for me by a whisker. Or should that read by an antenna?
