The Praying Mantis

Maybe it's just me, but the praying mantis has got to be one of the all time creepiest bugs. The way they cock their head to the most severe angles, the way they do that weird walk/wobble back and forth... they just kind of freak me out! This evening my husband and I were trimming the bushes in front of the house, and I came across a praying mantis. I decided to do an impromptu session with it. It was great at first, but then towards the end it started doing some weird karate-like stances, and it proceeded to LUNGE at (and land on) my camera lens! I screamed like a baby and ran. Like I said, these things are creepy...
