KLB - Praying Mantis

Yikes! Take a look at this praying mantis that was hanging around outside our building on a discarded burlap bag. It's hard to see in the photo how big it really was, but it was as big as my middle finger. I wanted to keep it as a pet, but Julie had another idea: run away and fast.

Information about praying mantises

I've seen a bunch of these since I've been in Korea, but according to this information, they are common in southern parts of Asia.

"Praying mantids can resemble flowers and can catch small, unknowing hummingbirds. Praying mantids also eat other nesting birds."
