On the Prowl

This Preying (or praying if you prefer) Mantis seemed to be reprimanding me to be still and quiet. It’s not very nimble but does exhibit a fair amount of patience while prowling for the flies that were landing nearby.

    Is it really “preying?” I always thought it was praying because of the way they hold their front legs. I don’t know if I’m intrigued or disappointed. Great photo, though, and it does look like it is telling you to be quiet. πŸ˜‰
