>Praying-mantis and flowers

I went to pull off this picture of a praying-mantis from my phone this morning and found other floral pictures I had forgotten from a little while back. You know, the funny thing about having all little girls is you would expect them to not like bugs. Well, this is the butterfly girl, or maybe I should call her the bug girl, because she is always catching rolly pollies, caterpillars and other such creatures. Remember the post a few days ago (a caterpiller) and yesterday a praying-mantis. Not even the least bit afraid of bugs, and this was a good-size one. I mean, look at those dimples; she was so proud to show me and have me take a picture with my phone. Yep, no squeamish little girl here with this type of bug. Now have a fly or bee buzz her, she will freak out! Go figure.

    >as a child i had a praying mantis for a pet too. It started out sooo small that it was afraid of large flys we cought for it to eat. It soon greww large very fast, we couldn’t keep up trying to keep it fed. We had all the neighbor kids bringing bugs in for it to eat. Finally we gave it to a science teacher and he kept it in a large terarrium, where he witnessed it eat part of a lizard! That Mantis was a very interesting pet.
