I was walking out the door and saw him! A praying mantis. My first thought? Grab the camera! I know it isn't as sweet as a hummingbird, (especially since it wasn't moving) but cool non the less. I love praying mantis'! I remember seeing their seed pod things in our back yard and watching them day after day. (boy I wish I had my camera then) One day they hatched and there were what seemed like millions of them! They looked pretty much like that picture above, but way smaller!
I know he is there to die. That's the way it goes. But they are amazing insects. Not to mention they eat bugs!
For those of you who are as weird as me, or my son, check this out!
