Preying Mantis

I was trimming the bushes out front the other day while Super N plopped herself down in a pile of dirt and proceeded to play in it and eat it when I wasn't looking. W was hanging out on the porch playing with the windchimes and Baby J was taking a nap. Well I saw something move suddenly in the bushes that caused me to jump back. But I quickly ran inside and grabbed the camera b/c I had never seen a Preying Mantis so up close. It's a bit scary looking but really amazing looking too. I thought I'd share but I hope I don't scare anyone. Can you see him in the picture?

Cool pic! He really blends in with the shrubs, doesn't he?
