    The other morning I was sitting by the trailer drinking my coffee when I see this with its head stick out from under the air filter. It slowly moved out so I could get a pic. I didn't bother him and when we got to the first job I noticed he was still on the blower. The wind didn't blow him off.

    Thats cool that you just left him alone. Most people would have killed him. I like bugs n stuff like that as long as it isn't damaging anything!

    Cool, I haven't seen many this year, usually they are everywhere. Ever seen a praying mantis hunt for food? That's one really fast and sneaky insect when it wants to be.

    My mother had a 85 300 zx turbo back in the day. Nice car back then and a mantis was on the hood. We thought 70mph on the highway would blow the little guy off, but instead his legs got really red and he stuck like glue, till we got all the way home. Next day he was gone.
