Mr Mantis - Amy Simmonds

It was taken on a lazy Sunday. My sisters and I were sitting on the back steps when I found a praying mantis in our rosemary bush. I took it to show my sisters. Then one of them came up and started tormenting it with a stick until it sprouted its purple wings and then Dad said to leave it alone and we went inside.
