Praying Mantis.

I went out to look at my car for the first time since the freak hail storm we had last week, and was surprised to see a gigantic praying mantis on the trunk of my car. It had to be over 4 inches long and was the largest one I’ve ever seen. I ran upstairs and grabbed my (crappy) digital camera to take a picture of it.

While trying to upload the picture to my computer, the battery in the camera died, so I went downstairs to the hall desk and stole the 9-volt battery from the emergency weather radio (yes, my camera takes a 9-volt battery).
