I say a little prayer...

YES! My first EVER praying mantis! I can't believe it, I've never actually seen one in real life, only one tv and in books...they are unbelievably cool. I was amazed when I was home for lunch today I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye. At first, it looks just like a bit of dead plant material...a twig or something. Then it moved, and I realized what it was. After watching it for a few minutes (with the camera on full paparazzi mode) it proceeded to scamper up the joe pye weed and attack one of the bumblebees. While i appreciate the circle of life bit, I was still sad at the death of the bumbler...because i sorta love them :-( I guess Black Mamba (that's what I've named the mantis for the moment) and I will have to chat about who it is acceptable to eat.



UPDATE - She's still there this morning! I'm hoping she sets up residence, romances a male (before probably eating his face off) and birthing dozens of voracious little mantislings!
