Daily Prompt/ First time seeing a Praying Mantis

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/30/daily-prompt-beginning/ Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.

It was the first time I ever saw a  Praying Mantis  I went outside the other day, and I saw something I had never seen before with my own eyes, I quickly called my husband, and he said, it’s a PRAYING MANTIS, Yes, of course, he looked like he was praying…. I ran inside and grabbed my camera, snapped a few quick shots, and then I put the camera down, and sat quietly and just enjoyed him for a few minutes, and then went inside.

I looked for him the next day, and he was actually still there, and the next after that, but a few days passed, and he was no longer there, I guess he was on to bigger and better things, but I was so happy he came to my yard, and I got to enjoy him for a day or so, and that was my first time seeing a Praying Mantis!!!   Here a few facts about this wonderful creature!

The praying mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer. The larger group of these insects is more properly called the praying mantids. Mantis refers to the genus mantis, to which only some praying mantids belong.

By any name, these fascinating insects are formidable predators. They have triangular heads poised on a long “neck,” or elongated thorax. Mantids can turn their heads 180 degrees to scan their surroundings with two large compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them.
