So this guy here is a Mantidfly, looks a lot like a cross between a praying mantis and a wasp, a pretty cool in fact. I found him when I went to go barbecue, some stuff, he is on the back fence, so I caught him in a jar. I found out what he was he is completely harmless as it turns out, looks really ominous, but pretty harmless, and he is pretty chill too like I’ve had him for a couple of days now.
And one time I went to clean the little container I had him in, I went to clean the top and left it open for about two hours and he moved from inside the small container to about 2 inches away from the container in those two hours. I had him for a couple of days and I haven’t really seen him fly either kind of cool, but he seems to be intrigued by the camera here, going after that pretty good. So, I’ll just let you to take a look at him. Woo!
Lucky for this guy, I found him right before I started a barbecue, which means tons of flies I show up for him to eat. So I caught him and then caught some of the flies that showed up to the barbecue and this is him munching on one of those flies. Apparently, these guys will catch food a couple of different ways, one is they mine. Post camp by a flower and wait for something to come along or they will post camp by a porchlight and wait for some [moles] and such. Most of these guys actually aren’t very pretty, they’re just brown with wings, but this guy is a wasp mimic, which I think is pretty cool. I mean just look at him. So I’ll let you to take a look at him eating and maybe you’ll find him as intriguing as I do.
