One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

We (Asian Staff and ASRT's) did a cleanup project in the Central Valley today and Amnda found the biggest mantis
When she (Amanda) brought her over, I though she (the mantis) was smoking a cigarette, but it turned out to be a fragment of leg hanging out of her mouth. She (the mantis) did light up later and I shuddered, grateful to be human.
