neat shot! But I don’t like them either 🙂 Aren’t they supposed to eat their mates?
Thanks….I think you’re right; I hadn’t remembered that part….or is it Black Widow spiders? Oh well, either way, I’ll keep a respectful distance. I have the distinct impression it thought I was getting too close.
I don’t really like these creatures…. They eat the cicadas, and i like cicadas, they sing! Plus they get pretty angry when you come close to them! Nothing “praying” about them, they are evel predator-bugs! (fine, i don’t hate them that much…. 😛 )
I didn’t know they ate cicadas…I like the cicada music too. I think this guy was ready to go for it and jump on me to bite me! He was definitely giving me the “eye” 🙂
Preying Mantis…I am so fascinated with this creature as a kid. Great shot!
Thanks IT…I have to laugh when I think of taking this shot. It was on top of a recycling can lid; I inched closer and closer determined to get a close up…but I knew if it jumped at me I would scream and run for my life. I’m scared of insects!
