A few weeks ago Hubby and I were trimming a bush beside our front door when I noticed a Praying Mantis. I made a note of where he was so I could get my camera when we were finished. A little later I couldn't find him and was disappointed more than I could say.
This week we were putting down new mulch and there he was in a small pine beside the fron porch. This time we stopped and Hubby went for my camera. He's been hanging around for a few days now so I think he's taken up residence which is more than fine with me.
