Praying Mantis

The kids in my son's fourth grade class are getting an unscheduled science lesson. These praying mantises were perched on the classroom window screen. Fortunately, I had my camera and was able to catch this image from outside the classroom window. 

Even in school, the lesson can be a surprise.

Praying Mantis - Flotsam of the Mind

    1. Because we (apparently) share a brain, it should come as no surprise to me that you noticed I used the singular in the title when there were multiples in the photo. I did so because I also didn't know the plural, looked it up, and was provided two options--mantises or mantes. Neither sounded right to me, so I went with the singular.

  2. Susie: great pic. I always thought they were all green. I didn't realize they had color to them.
