Last night's praying mantis was still there this afternoon- guess she likes us!

    These things get pretty big out in the Inaka, don't they?
    I was once sitting next to an older Japanese woman who suddenly discovered one of these sitting on her shoulder. She just said 「あら」 and coolly plucked it off. The thing was at least a foot long.

    Crazy.

    Cool lady. I don't know any Japanese women (or men for that matter) who wouldn't totally freak out if they found a giant mantis on their shoulder.
