    Yes, the one I saw was on a wall, alongside grass, but not in the grass where its camouflage would have made it impossible to spot of course, but where it might hope to be preying. Just "praying" perhaps.

    "I've always been fond of moths. As far back as I can remember.
    This fondness can't be explained, and shouldn't be explained.
    But I do remember enjoying the smell of moth balls in my grandmother's bureau.
    My God! I've just made another poem! I can't seem to help it!"

    The name derives from the Greek word meaning "prophet" or "seer."
    And for the folded forelimbs of the creature's prayer-like posture.
