Praying Mantis

I always enjoy running into Mantis in the fall. I don’t know why this always seems to be the time we find them hanging about. We found two of them in the shop, and evicted them to the bushes by the pond. My husband pointed out that normally I would never pick up a bug that big! But I make exceptions for Mantis and Woolly Bear Caterpillars.


He settled in for a bit of grooming…


Then he got curious about the camera…


And finally he climbed right up on the lens!
