Lurking Monster

Highlighted by the oblique rays of the morning sun, this praying mantis looks a terrifying sight...

The praying mantis is a carnivorous insect which survives in a suburban garden on a diet of smaller insects. For this fact, it is most likely a valuable member of a home garden community as it devours insects more damaging to our plants.
