This young praying mantis has been hanging out on the daylilies for several days.

He (or she) is not at all alarmed by the closeness of the camera, but continues his patient prayerful watch.  I hope he catches lots of nasty daylily-eating bugs.

On a totally different subject, Marion sent me this nice shot she snapped on our ride Tuesday.  It shows me, Kitty, and Xena on a rather overgrown spot on the trail.  You have to look closely to see Xena.

It’s too bad pictures can’t record the smell of the vegetation or the sounds of the birds.  Memory has to supply those.  Who knows what will be invented next, though?
