Ophelia

When I was little I had a subscription to a series of kids magazines from the United States. It started with Ladybird then Spider then Cricket and then Circada. By far the most memorable were the Spider mags because they had fantastic little comics starring various bugs on the bottom of the page. There was always an adventure and always something to learn. Anyways the Praying Mantis was called Ophelia, mothered all the rest and was lovely. So I really rather like the Praying Mantis (despite her reputation) and this little Ophelia was a fine specimin - not camera shy at all!
