The Worcester Line really bugged him today

Preying mantis on his leg

Roving UHub photographer Will Kilburn reports:

While I was listening to the Clash's "Police On My Back" on the Worcester Line, this little guy landed on my leg... and stayed there all the way to Beacon Hill, where I finally shook him loose at the little park in the back (couldn't bring him in to work - strict no-pets policy).

They're not endangered. They're not even native. There are two introduced species here in New England, the Praying Mantis from Europe and the Chinese Mantis. The one pictured is a Praying Mantis.
