The Lantana Queen

 

An ancient file I dredged up while I was in a ‘mantis mood’. Trying to spread a little more mantis appreciation on the web. Probably my favorite photo of a mantis, ever, posing on a lantana bush.

Female mantises are larger than their male counterparts. This one was at least three inches long and was in her ‘prime’ at the time. Around September/October the mantises in my yard are the biggest and most impressive.
