Mantidflies (Mantispidae family)

I just found out about these critters recently, and I honestly had to look it up to make sure it wasn’t just a hoax. (Kind of like the guys who thought the platypus was a hoax, too!) But no, it’s a real insect, and a great example of convergent evolution at both ends!
