    After pissing off this Carolina mantid with my prodding finger, I took some shots. Not the most natural habitat I know, but had to suffice as the sucker kept running around during photo session. Managed to get some shots though.


    Here she is, pissed off, but not quite sure where the threat is.


    "Aha, there you are!"


    Gotta love that wing patterning, who says only exotic mantids are cool?

    By this time she has the sense that the camera is the true threat.

    "One step closer(hsss...), and I'll show you who's boss!"

    By rubbing the side of the abdomen to the second pair of wings(see how that wing is rubbing against the abdomen in this pic?), she makes a loud hissing sound, which definetly adds to the drama and makes the bird or whatever it is think twice!

    LOL Jimscott: If you saw it in life, you would not agree! I was cautious with poking her with my finger as I knew that she would grab it if pissed off too much

    Mijako: Well, If your plant had pitchers around 5-6 inches I think it might be able to digest it but I wouldn't have the heart to do that.

    In the second picture it looks like she was conducting an orchestra.

    Finch: I haven't heard the term, 'gravid' used in SOOOOOO long. I normally hear it applied to livebearing tropical fish, like guppies. It doesn't go over too well when applying it to my wife or other human type females. Neither did an old supervisor's term - "prego".
