Our Cat caught and brought this mantis into the house. She dropped it on the floor to play with it. My wife said " get it out of here before the cat eats it ! " which I replied " I will - but first, I'm going to test my new camera and lens on it ". I placed the Mantis in our cat's pot of new growth oat grass and set on the kitchen table. Boy was was that mantis happy to get away from that cat ! He was a little sluggish, but crawled around in the grass and posed for quite a while.
