Praying Mantis

Thanks to the praying mantis shown above, aphids and other insects are not eating our plants. Of course, we have gophers devouring the nasturtiums.

The mantis rubs its front legs together when it is in prey mode/pray mode. This one is a few feet from our front door.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
