Reader Mark Sturtevant sent us another stumper:
I found several praying mantises this summer, and one of them is here somewhere. This was taken when I had released it after taking a number of close up pictures. Can the readers of WEIT find it? Happy hunting!
I’ll post the answer at 11 a.m. Chicago time. If you spot it, please refrain from giving the location in the comments below, though feel free to pat yourself on the back! Note, though, that it is PRAYING mantis, not PREYING mantis; this is a mistake that is common. They do prey, but they look as if they’re praying.
