That bug is so cool! Is it a type of beetle?
Nope, it was a mantis. And a good bit larger than it looks in this picture. Kids found him in a flower. His markings were really quite beautiful, but I still didn't want it to touch me.
Ok, now that you say mantis I can see it -- the head area makes more sense. The body however looks like a beetle. Its markings are as fascinating as they are a bit freaky.
