Praying Mantis

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on October 21, 2011

Even though praying mantis are considered a beneficial insect, they always look like something out of a horror movie to me.  This one had camped out by the porch light on the side of my house.  Lots of insects circle that light at night, or did until the temperature dropped at night.  Most of the praying mantis I have seen are green, but everything is dried out and dead after a long drought, so brown is probably better camouflage this year.
