Praying hard

Just what this this praying mantis was including in his petition. One thing for sure, he picked the wrong place to do it. Right in the middle of the slide. Of course, that scared all the kids. They had never seen anything like it before. But when I brought my camera up to take his picture before scaring him away, they all took immediate interest.

"What's it called?" "Why do they call it that?" "Does it bite?" Finally, so that the kids could get back to play, I decided to scare it away. Little did I know that the thing was doing his transcendental meditation. He ignored me. And continued to ignore me. Not till I turned to leave did he final move along.
