Any kind of flying bug will send me into a complete freak out...Here is a picture I have from September '08, where I held a large dragonfly for well over half an hour, as well as a moth that hopped on to join the togetherness! Here they are. They have no names, at least that I gave them. Who knows what their friends call them. Probably the dragonfly is named "Zzzpp zzt zzt Zrm" and the moth "Fft fft flutter flutter Flit Flit".. I'm just guessing.
But I absolutely love dragonflies...they are so beautiful. I just don't want them to touch me....and all is good. :happy: This is a wonderful picture.
And very cool pics of the praying mantis'....thank you for sharing.
