Religious Bug

I love these little guys. This is a small one, but the Praying Mantis is a really fascinating bug. I'm not usually too interested in insects, but these are harmless and quite fun. And they are quite often found in gardens and yards during the summer. Here my sister models her find for the good of the people.

Is that a baby praying mantis? Very cute. Here in Japan we call them 'kamakiri' which literally means 'axe swinger.' I think I like 'praying mantis' better :)

If a praying mantis could really pray, which god would he pray to?

I dunno! ;-) Maybe the Green Giant?

Cute photo!
