Author 'Boucher Marc dit de Meilh' (Id 124516 ) : Hey hello, you see me? Look, I'm just behind young black locust leaves ... You take me in pictures ... The praying mantis (Mantis religiosa), met in a clearing hot and humid in the tall grass and a sprig of acacia one meter in height was left to photograph. It is a species of insect of the family Mantidae. It belongs to the order of Mantoptères. Why Mantis 'religious'? ... Because when she assaulted her front legs folded as if in prayer ... It is very voracious, can feed on larger prey it. Otherwise, it was nice to me. Marc Boucher said Meillan.
