Praying Mantis

I wanted to see the praying matis turn his head but I didn't want to put my hand near it, so I took a stem with a dead flower on the end and put it near his hed. He instantly grabbed it with lightning speed. Boy, was I glad it wasn't my finger! He held on for a long time. I guess he thought it was something edible.

I hate to encounter one of these in the garden.
