Build it and they will come (2)

This is another report of a charismatic critter that has set up house at the Farm. I should say that there are lots of amazing creatures at the Farm, but some really stand out. Earlier this morning I saw a beetle the size of my nose, but I didn’t get to my camera in time. But it was this praying mantis that caught my eye this afternoon. The lady (identified through the six segments on the abdomen) is at least the length of my hand. I wonder how many men she has chomped in half. (Does anyone remember the Teacher’s Pet episode of Buffy?)
