Praying Mantis – Photos

Wiki tells me that there are over 2,400 species of  Praying Mantis. That is quite a lot. The thing I think that the Praying Mantis is most well known for is, that the female eats the male while they are mating. Apparently this happens often when they are kept in captivity and much less when out in the wild.

Perhaps there is a lesson here for us?

Anyway, here are a few photographs I have taken of these fascinating little creatures.
