Cleaning my cutlery .....European Praying Mantis ( Mantis religiosa) by 


Praying mantises are predacious insects with great appetite. They mainly feed on insects, but sometimes they have smaller lizards, snakes , birds or little mammals as well.
Lately I have spent lots of time watching them. It was a great experience to observe them while hunting.
