Snarky Praying Mantis

I think all praying mantises are snarky.  I imagine them spinning a triangle head directly at you and sputtering off sarcastic comments with blunt irony.  This brown insect greeted me on my steps this morning.  According to National Geographic a praying mantis can live up to 12 months in the wild.

    • Hi Donna! They spit?! I had no idea! I don’t see them often around here in Maryland, and was very close to this one. I hope I see one again soon, but I bet you don’t feel the same way!
