Well, starting out to be a dreary day after such a lovely one yesterday where I even worked outside in the yard for a while. This actually is more what it should be like, spoiled by days yesterday. I have a day off today because of some vacation I had to use up so posting early. I captured this macro of a Praying Mantis looking at me this past Autumn. He seemed to be living in this Hibiscus plant because it was getting cold at night and I would take the plant in for the evening and he ended up in the kitchen a couple of times. He never caused any problems but I didn't want the cat to harm him so we would take him outside and he would be on this plant again the next day. Not sure what Mantis do over winter but last I saw him he was down beside the house.
