Gigli’s Photo of the Week

Photographer by Rich Gigli

Praying Mantis

Did you ever wonder whether or not the Praying Mantis is an alien from outer-space like E.T.’s cousin?  Have you noticed their similarities?
The praying mantis and E.T. both have long arms. They both have large eyes situated in the same angle near the top of the head. The shapes of their heads are in a pear-like form with a long neck, however, E.T. can shorten his neck, but praying mantis cannot. Oh well, maybe this is why the Praying Mantis is the official State of Connecticut insect.
