I haven't seen a praying mantis in a couple years....This morning as Claire and I were about to get in the car this beauty was on the hood of the car.. I was thrilled to see one ! I took a stick and let her get on it and moved it to a tree in our yard. She's been there all day. Hope she sticks around. Thats two critters I've seen this year that I haven't seen in awhile..the other was a walking stick while we were camping but my camera doesn't take the best pictures so I don't have a picture of that to show you.
