If you were to ask me to tell you signs that the end of the world is near, in addition to the following:

1. The Parkway East is without traffic at 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

2. iJustine gets a zit.

3. It is 90 degrees in October in the Burgh.

would definitely be:

4. Praying mantises start killing birds in a violent fashion.

Two out of four.

The end is near.

Do you think we can train the mantises to do this to pigeons? Because I would pay a hefty sum for a picture of a mantis-impaled pigeon.

    That is awesome. Do you think it was a particularly enterprising mantis, or do they take down hummingbirds all the time? It looks like it knew what it was doing.

    Saw a Mantis on Herr’s Island the other day. Just hanging out. Waiting.
