Just a baby praying mantis fighting for its life after I accidentally sprayed it with some detergent insecticide.
We have aphids on our wildflowers, so I was spraying them with this soap based insecticide that I found that is supposedly much better for pets and the environment and all that but will still kill nasty little bugs. I was spraying away and disturbed a little praying mantis that was frantically going down the flower stem that it was on, away from the soap that I hope didn't kill it. He blended in so well with the stem that I wouldn't have noticed it all all except for the scurrying movement.
I was trying to get a closer look at it which apparently it didn't like because he started to look kind of like this, waving his legs around in a very menacing way. Preying mantises are quite brave, I've even seen one going up against Lucy cat.
