A Pleasant Surprise

While out in the yard today I was debating on what to photography before my work day starts. After assessing my options between the vegetables, hummingbirds or flowers, I decided on the Indigo plant.

The striking dark color of the berries contrasting with the dying leaves and green background I thought it would make a great muse for a few minutes.

Then i saw my fisfirst Praying Mantis abs as i moved areound i see 3 more. There were 4 Praying Mantis on the Indigo plant. I have never seen more then one at a time. It is usually one or maybe, if I am lucky, 2 in a season. This was a pleasant and well need surprise.

The fourth picture was too blurry to post.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Lucky you. The mantises are beautifully purple like the plant. Our praying mantises are either green or brown.

  3. Indigo? How interesting. My family ran indigo plantations in India for two centuries before WWI. I’d never actually seen the plant. 🙂
