While preparing the garden for winter we spotted this Praying Mantis. Camouflaged well in the plants, it will devour any insect that comes near. Named "praying" mantis because of the way the front legs are folded as if in prayer, it should be named "preying" mantis since is preys on any insect and even small frogs. A praying mantis eats any insect and doesn't differentiate between beneficial and harmful insects. It is still welcome in our garden.
