Green Praying Mantis

close up shot of a big, bright green praying mantis This is a picture of a praying mantis that I spotted on the wall at our place in France. I managed to get fairly close but I was too scared to get closer! I don't know if they bite or anything and it looked a bit mean with those pointy front claws! I didn't quite get the bokeh right on this one, but it's not a bad shot really considering I was so freaked out by it.
