My son was very excited when I got home from work tonight. He told me he caught a Praying Mantis. Cool I thought expecting to see one of the little green guys about 1.5 inches long... Nope... Try 4" long!!!

My daughter's shoe for some perspective:

The tape measure to verify:

That's a biggin' alright. I love the last picture. The composition is really good with the mantis looking directly at the lens while the body is facing right angles to the camera. It makes it seem as though you caught it in the act of escaping or something. I really like it.
