He's/She's back!

I have to wonder if my friendly neighborhood praying mantis is the same creature from a few weeks ago? I have no way to tag it, other than the lens of my camera. How amazing is this insect that it can stand vertically, balancing its big ass body on such wee high heals in a great big wind?! I have so much to learn…..

Actually, they are very easy to catch and don't bite. A tiny dab of finger nail polish on the thorax just behind the head won't bother him but will make him readily identifiable. Then next time you see him you can say, "Look, there's Spot."

Stick a critter-cam on his back and watch on your t.v. where it goes.

I cannot believe this is the same daughter who ran a mile, screaming, whenever she saw a daddy longlegs.
Spelling not good on this one, heels are what one has on the back of one's feet.
Hope you're absorbing all the fascinating info. from Tulsa gentleman.

The walk to my bathroom at work is quite the critter funeral parlor..."Look, there's spot all crushed up on the carpet" is more like it!
Ulli-have you tried your idea with Meesh?
And finally-Mum-don't fret I still scream and stick my head under the covers, but mostly at the sight of GP!

Now THAT I don't believe.

No hiding place from the Itailian whilst ever you have biscuits on offer.
