You can't look away from a praying mantis
This insect, photographed recently in Israel, is simply mesmerizing.
How are praying mantises so cool and yet, as creepy as robot Cabbage Patch dolls at the same time? These super powerful insects are ambush predators, meaning they capture their prey using sneakiness, rather than speed or strength. This stealthy guy was photographed on a mango tree in the Israeli Mediterranean coastal city of Netanya.
