NOT CUTE!! NOT CUTE!!!
These are the only bugs I'm scared of. Snakes, spiders adorable. Mantises EVIL!!!!! That is not a happy dance, that's a "I'm coming to eat you" dance!!

*ok. I'm calm now. Just don't make me look at it again.

How did that person get that shot, BTW?

I hope that it isn't Photoshopped, cos I want to believes it looked like this for reals for some reason. It that--WINGS?! On a Mantis? Delightful news to me.

 |  Mar 20, 2008 at 07:22 PM

AMAZING SHOT!!

Although I do think it might be a "I'm coming to eat you" dance or a "You are getting hypnotized" dance....

Cute 'n' creepy!

Martha in Washington: agreed! I'm not afraid of these guys and I don't mind this picture, but the day I see a commom house centipede on here (smiling/dancing or not!) is the day cuteoverload.com leaves my bookmarks.

*phobia phobia phobia omg*.

I comiserate with your fear!

Heather

It *doesn't* look Photoshopped... but I've never heard of a butterfly landing on a mantis' back before...

Shake, shake, shake, Senora, shake your body line
Shake, shake, shake, Senora, shake it all the time
Work, work, work, Senora, work your body line

Uh, the "butterfly on back" is really the mantis's wings, the outer pair is green (protective) the under thin flight pair is colored. NOT photoshopped.

Wait - so do we finally learn if Jonesy lives? If Ben survives? And what of Sophie and Brother Justin?

Season three of Carnivale...bring it on!

Or have I misunderstood something?

Aubrey

How perfect. The previous entry (precious puppy nosicle sleepiness) is labeled "Bokeh". Thinking it some other language term for "puppy", I Googled it. Got this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

and this:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/bokeh_/

So Dancing Mantis is also Bokeh!

Cool, eh?

"GOOD MORNING, BAAAALTIMOOOORE!!!"
