On a September day in South Africa, Margaret Neville made a fascinating discovery in her back garden. Resting among her lavender bushes was a flower mantis, a type of praying mantis which has evolved to appear incredibly “floral” as a method of camouflage.

The particular flower mantis found by Neville is a female with a large swirl pattern on her back and protrusions that look like lavender buds along her legs. Astonished by the insect's beauty, Neville named the mantis “Miss Frilly Pants” in reference to her purple “pantaloons.”

“Nature is there for us all to share,” Neville tells My Modern Met. Since sharing her discovery, Miss Frilly Pants now has many fans across the world.

Stunning! The pattern on the wings made me suspect it was a hoax that had been painted but after googling Flower Mantises I see it's definitely real! Look at these alien beauties! Reminds me of Iris Van Herpen :flutter:

So gorgeous and unlike any insect I've seen. Mantises are so fun to watch.

Ugh... In my dream life, I have a bunch of mantis pets. Probably also a pitbull, but obv we'd keep them in separate rooms.

I was replacing the flowers on my sister's grave last week and saw this gorgeous all-gray mantis amidst the blooms.

I guess it’s pretty, but I’d also be freaked out if I saw it in real life :bradley:

If this is scary then how about these? :bradley:
