And Another One Visits!

This year I have seen so many Praying Mantis, probably more than I have seen in most of my life combined. Maybe a slight stretch but hopefully you get my point.

I enjoy photographing them as they usually seem to be looking at me trying to figure out what the heck I am doing.

Thanks for visiting!

Hiding in Plain Sight

I love the way nature gave its most fragile creatures a way to blend in and hide from is predators.

Unfortunately this little guy was not hiding very well. He stood out like a sore thumb on the walkway.

It looks kinda like a leaf with spikes on the end.

Thanks for visiting!

Hiding

This small snail was found hiding in my stringbean plant.

Newest Family Members

These are just temporary family members…I don’t really want to claim them.. lol

I came home from work the other day and my grandson Arai greeted me at the door. He had this smile on his face so I knew something was up.

He runs to his room and brings out a container with some leaves and a bug in it.

He says that since I always mess with bugs he wanted to be like me and have bugs too. This of course made me smile.

When I saw what kind of bug it was I still smiled and supported his efforts.

At this point I could not tell him that he could not keep the “stink bugs”. I even told him to ask Google what do they eat.

Per Google, they eat fruit so they now have an orange to snack on.

I will give it a few more days then they gotta go.

Those Big Eyes You Have

This is not the sharpest image but I want to share anyway.

I like this one because you can see just how big this butterfly’s eyes are.

Sleepytime

Kairo (first picture) and Grayson at times find odd ways to sleep.
