Last weekend or so, my wonderful husband was grilling chicken on our back porch. He came running in to tell us there was a Praying Mantis on our porch screen. I immediately squealed with delight and ran out the door. The girls yelled, “What is it!?” And the young man said, “yuck”. I don’t think he is my son. There was a mistake at the hospital; I’m sure of it.
Anyhoo, we were able to get a few pictures. Not great ones, though. Isn’t she cute? 🙂
Below is a picture of her praying for Chocolatechic.
Heavenly Father, who made all CREATURES, please help Miss. CC understand that you made us all and we should all be loved. We, Praying Mantises, love to eat the bad bugs like flies, moths, crickets, and other such yummy snacks. I am getting hungry just thinking about them. smack-lick Please tell her not to smash us anymore. We will help control the bad insects at her house. Amen
PS. Don’t tell her we can lay up to 200 or more nymphs, that look just like the adults. Or that we females eat the males after mating or about this. We’ll just keep that a secret. Ok?
