A Very Religious Insect

We found this critter just outside our church building this morning. Beautiful.

Not only do we usually call them "Praying Mantis"  (though there are many different variety of Mantis, and I'm not exactly certain that this is a 'praying mantis')  but the word Mantis is derived from the Greek word for "prophet or seer."
