In all the kingdom of the living, there is no more
deadly or voracious creature than the Preying Mantis.
— William Hopper —
(as Dr. Ned Jackson in The Deadly Mantis)
For my first attempt at Odd Shot Monday, I discovered this Praying Mantis perched atop one of my gate posts. Not only did he take a time-out from chewing his toenails to pose – he even tried to smile…
Note: Without having seen the script, I don’t know if Praying Mantis is deliberately misspelled or if it’s a typo in the quote I found.
