Two Very Religious Bugs.......

The green color Praying Mantis below was inside the house at night last Friday,when I quickly took a photo. He was still in on following morning, so I scooped him up on a newspaper and put him on a Pomegranate tree and took another photo. Just as I was getting back inside, I saw the brownish one on a window grill. Talk about coincidence!  I clicked on him right then too,and again inside the house at night on the same day. Not only they differed in color but also in size, the green one was about four inches from head to the end of abdomen,while the other was roughly one fourth of it.

  9. My favorite bug - I've loved it since I was a child. They are so unusual looking. I've never seen a brown one, only the green. My Mother would tell me never to harm them because they're good luck. So - Good Luck to you!
