Artist's Description

I snuck up on these two mating mantises in my backyard this afternoon. Knowing that in some cases, the female mantis actually eats the male after mating, I watched with great interest to see what would transpire. The male must have Googled this info as well, because right after they finished, he took off like Usain Bolt at the Olympic sprint finals. She never had any shot at catching him ! Pretty cool stuff to observe !
