No, You Can't Come In


This was on the wall outside my apartment door.  It was interesting to look at but I didn't want it to come inside.

They are so interesting. We had one that moved back and forth for 3 days along a short section of our wall.

Its name is "Kamakiri". It's a popular bug in Japan. He has "sickles" equal "kama". "kiri" means "cut".

Mantis is about to visit your home. Mantis curiosity? Unfortunately the mantis made a mistake.

Advice to mantis.
“You should flap your wings and visit the grass”.

I couldn't agree more!

I'm sure it would have come in for just a very short visit.

Pamela: I love Praying Mantis, they are a wonder to hold in my hand, I love looking at their eyes and they look back.

Beautiful creature, probably happier outside anyway!

Nice mantis! I'm sure "outside" would be better for him than "inside".

Wow, that's a big one! As fascinating as I find bugs, I wouldn't want it inside, either.

That is an elegant looking mantis.
