Scott noticed a visitor perched on our bedroom's deck door screen. This was the largest praying mantis that he had seen so he was excited to share these photos.
Scott estimates that this bug is 3.5" long. That seems too tame to me so I'm changing his story slightly.
"Oh My! This crazy bug was over 11 inches long with a wingspan of 7 inches! It was all we could do to usher the cats into our safe room to protect them from this ferocious creature!"
According to Wikipedia, we narrowly escaped being chomped on by this "ambush predator."
Isn't magnification wonderful?
