The Mantis Returns?

I think I found the Mantis that hitched a ride home from Fresno in my wife's car, we released him hoping he'd like all the bugs attracted to our Passion Flower plant. I can't be sure it is the same one but it is definitely a mantis and about 100 times bigger than the little guy we found.
You see the resemblance? 

I hope he likes our front yard, we like thinking he is alright.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Well, if it's not the same one they would pass as twins! I love having a mantis around but must admit, when viewed really up close and personal, they're a little disturbing.

  2. Must be the time of the year for Mantis. I dug one out of the bug zapper the other morning before he became fried mantis and it was the first I've seen this year.
