Re: Great Mantis

This one had to be all of that 3.5 inches.

Re: Watch your fingers!

What is this ... everybody seems to be afraid
of Mister Mantis! To tell you the truth, I
find it a lot more scary to drive down
the freeway, especially I-5. The last time
I avoided it all together, and went through
Yakima over Chinook Pass. It was great, but
I didn't get any pictures. Which reminds me
of your pictures, Karl. They are wonderful!

Re: Watch your fingers!

Hey man, I'm just watching out for you! ;-)
This "cutie pie" has the figure of a greyhound and a mandible of a pitbull.
Good to know if your out cutting the roses....

Re: Watch your fingers!

I concede ... you're right, Tiger! I don't
have any roses to trim, but the Landlady
does. Mr. Mantis is truly an agressive
creature. It has to be, in order to survive
among the roses! : - )
