Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: The Mantid

Part of the BugFest event that my museum held in September was a glorious sand sculpture of an insect out in front of the main building.  I got to watch a bit of the guys carving it the day before Bug Fest, but I didn’t get to see the final product until a few days after it was over.  It was out there for about a week, and I was glad because that thing was awesome:

You know, I wrote a poem for my English class in high school about nearly the exact same thing.  Odd to see it as a giant sand sculpture!
