One morning there was a preying mantis (or is a praying mantis?) on my tire. He had flattened himself up against the rubber, for sleeping, I presume, and was a very pale color, instead of his normal green.

He stayed put, just changing his orientation by the time I reparked. I took some photos and tried to get a decent drawing from looking at them. I'm not there yet.
