Orthopterous and CarnivorousPosted: July 5, 2014 | |
The Praying Mantis
by Ogden Nash
From whence arrived the praying mantis?
From outer space, or lost Atlantis?
glimpse the grin, green metal mug
at masks the pseudo-saintly bug,
Orthopterous, also carnivorous,
And faintly whisper, Lord deliver us.
My keen-eyed husband spotted and photographed this little (about 2 inches long) critter.
