Almost Wordless Wednesday

This Praying Mantis hopped on the hood of my car when I stopped to talk to a neighbor.  I drove the rest of the block home very slowly and he stayed on. I had a hard time getting him off the car and didn't want him to have to stay in the garage, so I encouraged him to hop onto a clipboard I had with me and then put him in the grass. Prior to that he willingly posed for a lot of pictures.

IMHO, they are one of the most amazing critters on the planet. So strange yet so fascinating!
