Pic of the Week

Royals catcher Branyan Pena, a baseball and
a praying mantis during a game at Detroit.
This photo isn't from the past week. It's from the previous week. But

  • I really didn't like anything from this week nearly as much;
  • I like this one more than probably half the POWs I've used this year; and
  • It's my blog and I make the rules.


  1. Cool pic! Is there any story with it, Ed?

  2. Not that I'm aware of, other than that it's at least the third time this year that a mantis has taken up a position on a dugout rail during a major league game.

    Google "Logan Morrison mantis" and you should find a video of a mantis attacking Logan Morrison of the Florida Marlins. The bug must have been really hungry.
