    A Preying Mantis has been sitting on my Apt window for over two weeks now. At first I was like woah, that thing was awesome. I didnt touch it.

    A few days later it was still sitting there although not in the same spot... i thought maybe it was dead...

    I went ahead and touched it and it moved a few cm's.

    Earlier today my girlfriend looks at it and goes, "It sh1t on our window!"

    So here are the pics.

    this thing looks dangerious but it's harmless. It would attack if you come too close but couldn't do any damage to you. So leave it alone. If it's in your way, just plash it with water to move it out of your way.

    A huge one flew into the house while we were renovating. The body was a good eight inches across. Had to take a newspaper & let it jump on so it could be let out.

    Anything that kills all those other pests around the house if a friend of mine. Not to mention nosey neighbors who would probably report me for killing it.

    These pics would make a badass wallpaper! Due to them being shot thru glass, it would look like the bug was on your monitor...and crapped on it. :D
