Praying Mantis

Travis Frank

When I think of Washington, the state, I think of mountains, trees and rain.  A recent trip out there revealed that I was way off in my prediction.  Dry desert conditions are the norm on the western side.  Exactly the habitat for this little creature.  It's called a Praying Mantis.  The cool thing about this little bugger is how they change their colors to match their surroundings.  Similar to a chameleon.  I didn't know this before, but I do now.  Accidentally, I stumbled on a cool photo op.  I hope you enjoy it!
