Woman Finds a Stunning Flower Mantis Resting in Her Garden

Margaret Neville made a fascinating discovery in her garden where she spotted a flower mantis. Flower mantis is a type of praying mantis which has a supper flower look because of its camouflage method. Margaret shared her lovely guests on the internet where she gained a lot of attention. This particular flower mantis she found, is a female with a large swirl pattern on her back and protrusions that look like lavender buds along her legs. Astonished by the insect’s beauty, Neville named the mantis “Miss Frilly Pants” in reference to her purple “pantaloons.”

Nature never fails to serve us, and this moment is one of them. Now Miss Frilly Pants has fans around the world. Some videos of it can be seen on the Waterfall Retreat & Environmental Centre Facebook page. By late September last year, the page announced that the female flower mantishas found a male partner.

There are many species of mantis across the globe. One of them is the orchid praying mantis. The females of this kind are larger and covered in brilliant colors, with legs that look astonishingly like orchid petals. They wait for insects to approach them, tricked by their floral appearance. However, the males have not evolved with floral camouflage. They are smaller with dull colors. While the females’ appearance is a colorful trap, males must hunt rather than lie in wait.

The entire Universe outside our galaxy could have completely disappeared over 20,000 years ago and we still wouldn’t know it yet. Our view of the Universe is actually what it looked like anywhere from thousands to Billions of years ago -with no way to see what it actually looks like “right now”. Imagine if you looked out your front window and saw your yard as it was 6 months ago, neighbors house across the street a year ago, and houses a block or two away as they were several years ago. Also off in the distance you see the glaciers from the last ice age. That’s what it’s like looking out at the Universe.
