Here’s the mantis!

Here’s the picture of a cryptic praying mantis, photographed by Mark Sturtevant, that I posted earlier today. Did you spot it? First the regular photo, then the reveal:

    Well, as usual, I did not spot this mantis, but I did spot a Carolina Mantis, Stagmomantis carolina, hunting among my giant sunflowers this morning. When I caught it for closer examination, it spiked the hell out of my thumb with its vicious raptorial foreleg.

    I was right – for once! I’m going to paste this image into my scrapbook and keep it forever.

      Me, too!

      Much better than the time with those pelicans!

    Missed that one completely. Was looking for a green one. Most mantisses here are green.

      Got it. Sometimes it helps being colour-blind!
