[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As the name suggests, the European Mantis was one native to Europe and was discovered in the United States in 1899. It is a type of Praying Mantis. They are highly recognizable creatures, mainly thanks their odd shape. Their bodies are relatively large and long with four legs at the abdomen area and two larger legs that appear more like arms. These appendages, called forelegs, are bent at severe angles giving them the appearance of holding their 'hands' in prayer.
