3/11. If you see an insect with a triangular head, bulging eyes, sitting upright with arms folded like in prayer, it is likely a ‘praying’ mantis.

Here is an example. It is not praying, but eating a bumblebee.

An amazing finding during a mantis's dinner-table drama (as observed by a non-expert in forest-edge uplands in the Canary Islands, Aug 2020).

A praying mantis -- a predator of insects that is as grimly formidable as it looks -- flies in noisily for a late-evening dinner... Image

He disappears briefly...
soon emerging from the moonless gloom to the edge of a side-lit terrace..
keeping an eye on the moths and other insects that gather around its grand, luminous stage... Image

Sería muy interesante armar el maratón de #MCU alrededor de #Avengers, pero acomodando todas las escenas de todas las películas en una sola línea temporal. No incluyo las series por que sería sumamente largo y complicado.

Abro #hilo y me explico.

Actualmente hay dos formas (bueno hay un chingo) en que puedes ver todas las películas del Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel:
1.- En el orden cronológico de lanzamiento, es decir comenzar con #IronMan (2008), hasta llegar a #AvengersEndgame (2019).
2.- Viéndolas en orden cronológico de tiempo de los eventos, es decir, comenzar con lo que sucedió primero con #CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger y terminando con #AvengersEndgame. Esto sin contar los "flashbacks" con los que comienzan algunas como #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy

@jenylamb @dytiscusman ideas on species? Seems too slender & w/diff body proportions for a Carolina mantis (which I've seen in MS)
@dytiscusman another angle Image
