Natures turn…….

Praying Mantis

Taken this morning at Brazos Bend State Park. This little guy was about 2″ long and blended in real good. I was bent over looking at something else when I must have made him nervous and saw the movement. If he hadn’t moved I most likely wouldn’t have seen this photo op.

    That’s taking blending in to a whole new level. I’m often grateful for movement to help me find wild things.

    Great photo–looking right at you!
    The praying mantis is so fascinating.
    Looks like a very intelligent being….from another planet!
