Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

We've been seeing more praying mantises this year. This one was in our driveway this afternoon. T tells me it is a side effect of climate change. They were thick at the dealership where we bought our car. The salesman said parents were bringing their children out to see them.

Despite their peaceable name, they are wickedly carnivorous little rascals who will even pounce on nesting birds.

I should warn the Finches.
