Day 271 - Religious insect

Late this afternoon I found this creature saying his prayers (for another insect to come close I suspect) on the siding of our house. It is unusual to see one in plain view. Also, my DSL is working again, so I will visit more of you than I did last night.

I had one the other day, too, and will post her one day soon. They are quite amazing. I used to keep on as a classroom pet for my first graders. They would spend recess catching grasshoppers to feed her. When I post my pictures, I will have to tell some of the first grade paraying mantis stories.

BTW, I hope you came by Katney's Kaboodle for the rest of the balloon pictures from this morning--or at least ten percent of the ones I took.

I like the shadow aspect of this -- and the lines. It looks very sinister in a late, late movie kind of way!

I am glad someone is taking care of prayer around here! Thanks for the view of this fellow, Lew!

Beautiful catch. Love the light in this one.

I like the black and white - the contrast really shows up.
