Praying Mantis and Shield Bug

Knocking the olives out of the tree today, these also came tumbling down!!
The small praying mantis was climbing the wall a couple of days ago.

We have a green one about 4 inches long sat in the bushes with us by our pool today.

The green one sat on my hand for ages, looking this way and that. Unfortunately, my little camera does not have a macro setting and all the pictures were blurred.

Re: Praying Mantis and Shield Bug

We used to get quite big ones in the Oleander Emmy, biggest one we had was about 4" wonderful looking insects, they look alien to me.

I remember my Mum telling me about the huge ones they used to get in Singapore, they freaked her out she hated them .

Re: Praying Mantis and Shield Bug

Yes it is, the first live one we have seen in the six years we have lived here! have seen a couple of dead ones but this one was a cracker. Sorry about the pictures I have not quite got the hang of putting them on. We watched him (or her) change colour as we put him on a plant.
