Blue: Praying From the Bottom, Up

Mantis

Do you suppose she is praying for her tasty, uhm, dearly departed mate?

Oops! OC, the scientist, says that this is likely a male Mantis.
He says he believes that the abdomen is too small for a female.
So ….
Do you suppose he’s looking for his mate for a little pre-dinner romp?
(One assumes he doesn’t know what’s on the menu.)

I offer this Praying Mantis as a dual post
for
Anna’s Project Blue
AND
Jeremiah’s, From the Ground, Up.
