Ten days ago I did a post called Return of the Mantis. This post featured a praying mantis that had camouflaged itself to match the wood on the side of our house. Yesterday I discovered two other mantis, and these are the normal green that we see! They have made themselves homes where we have had aphid activity, and they are filling up their bellies with these delectable treats! Let’s go check out these amazing insects, shall we?
Can you see that I am green with envy?
Now, your challenge is to find the praying mantis in these photos!
Of course the praying mantis got its name because it looks like it is praying. What do you think?
When I went to shoot the next two photos, each one of them turned to look at me!
These little guys like to not only hang out upside down…
…they also like to be on top of the world!
I think that this insect is one of the coolest insects that we have here in the foothills! Did I mention that they fly?
Thank you for dropping by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! Be well! ^..^
