A couple of days ago, my husband mentioned that he hasn't seen any praying mantis this year. Well, this morning when I was looking at my butterfly bush I saw one. I called my son and showed it to him.
I took a picture of him and he looked at me like saying "What are you doing?" Lol! This one stayed there for a long time and Ms. Burrito got to see him when she came home fro school.
I went back to the butterfly bush hoping that the little praying mantis came back but I found this grasshopper instead.
love these- not sure whyReplyDelete

I love your insect photos! I've not been out to look for insects because the mosquitoes keep biting me instead.ReplyDelete
They are strange looking insects. I very seldom see them, myself.ReplyDelete
Thanks for following me. The pictures you took are great! We had some praying mantis' that were born in our snowball bush. There were dozens of them. I wish we took pictures of all of them!ReplyDelete
I'll take the mantis, but you can keep the grasshopper! They eat on one of my trees every year. Great captures...without the jar! :-)ReplyDelete
Yes, praying mantis and grasshoppers are good insects. Your yard is a magnet for all kins of God's little creatures. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.ReplyDelete
