Praying Mantis

I spotted this little guy on the porch railing yesterday. It's a Praying Mantis. While I was looking at him, trying to get a good view from side to side, he'd turn his head and watch me, left to right!

This morning I took Braden and Dalton to pick up their football gear. They had their football drafts Wed evening and they are on the same team they were on last year. First practice is next Saturday. I think they are getting excited as they keep running around with their shoulder pads and helmets on,lol.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry my visits have been scarce, been hectic!


  1. How cute that it watched you. I really never realised how leafy they look - I think I'd have assumed he was a bit of a plant that had fallen off!

  2. Sounds like Hubby... bought a new baseball bat and keeps touching it... LOL.. boys and their toys, huh.

    The Blue Ridge Gal

  3. It is kind of cute for a long legged green insect. Not something we these parts.

  4. He's so delicate! I can't believe it's almost time for football again.

  5. Don't those things eat their mates?

  6. I haven't seen one of those guys yet this year....except right now and here!


Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
