Encounter

This so-called swordsman is a mantis. Somehow, this mantis is a little different from the impression, mainly the color. Generally, the common one is mostly green, while the guy in front of him is dark brown. If it is really difficult to find it on the land, is it for disguise? On a whim, he caught it and put it on the table. Take out the phone and take a photo of it at close range. I saw a row of hard serfs on its forelegs and a hook at each end, which may be used to hook its prey. The head of the triangle twists and turns from time to time, looking left and right, as if observing the surrounding environment. Prominent and bright compound eyes, slender antenna, very beautiful. In my hometown, Mantis is called machete, which is very vivid. Generally, on jujube trees and locust trees, most of them are green and slightly yellowish. I never provoked it when I was young, and I was afraid that its two broadswords would hurt me to some extent. It is said that it is a carnivorous insect, which can prey on insects of fly, mosquito, Locust, cicada, locust and so on. Seeing it, I couldn’t help thinking of idioms related to it, such as Mantis catching cicadas, yellow Sparrow behind, mantis arm blocking the car and so on. “Wu Yue Spring and Autumn period” recorded that mantis catching cicadas aimed at advantages, but I didn’t know. People who understand doctors say that it can also be used as medicine to cure diseases, cure shock and twitching, detoxify and reduce swelling, hemorrhoids, beriberi and so on, which is really unexpected. Speaking of Mantis, I have to mention mantis boxing. Mantis Boxing is a traditional boxing that imitates the evolution of Mantis movements. It was created by Wang Lang from Jiaodong in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties and has a history of more than 300 years. According to legend, the ancestor of Wang Lang observed the movement and movement of Mantis catching cicadas, took their expressions, endowed them with yin and yang, and applied the methods of up and down, left and right, back and forth, advance and retreat, the mantis boxing method was created by performing 18 ancient methods. It is a treasure of Chinese traditional martial arts and a wonder of Chinese martial arts. In addition, Mantis is often loved by Chinese painters and is often carefully described at the end of the painting. I have seen many works of Mantis painted by old Baishi on the Internet, which are vivid, interesting, small and cute. Of course, the paintings are also expensive. After the photos were taken, they were sent to WeChat, which also made friends have a glimpse of the swordsman’s elegant demeanour. I remember that in the poem “walking on the village road in autumn” written by Le Lei from Song Dynasty, there was a road where rice flowers were the Lord, Red Dragonfly accompanied by green mantis. Unfortunately, today’s mantis brother changed his luggage, hehe. 2015.10.24 like (prose editor: Jiangnan wind) the snow in spring
