And it occurred to me, as I was taking this picture, that of all the insects, Praying Mantises seem somehow aloof. Holier than thou. With their ramrod-straight backs, distainful turning of the head as they look at you with their unfixed gaze through knobby cold eyes. Who do they think they are, anyhow?
They should, however, get the award for good posture--don't you think?
