My Favorite Mantid

Rescued a praying mantis today from certain doom. You see, she was rather lost on the corner of Vanderbilt and Atlantic, hanging on the side of a building. Since the pollution of the passing cars would certainly make the little lady come down with a tummy ache, we carried her home and let the critter loose in the back yard. I'm hopeful that she'll spend the rest of her days eating nasty insects head first just like she likes em... She does have a pretty smile, doesn't she?
