Praying Mantis Visitor

NOW YOU KNOW I could not just have a plain ol' visitor in the yard here!

I always am picking dead leaves and things off the bushes when I walk in the yard and I almost grabbed right a hold of this green guy thinking he was a leaf!  Imagine my surprise when I realized what it was and called hubby to take a picture.  His camera is better for close up shots.  I think mantis' are so interesting and their bodies so intricate in design.  Now the pictures below are ones I took sitting right here in my window of a "Stink Bug" that was crawling up the window.  I did not need a telephoto lens for him- yikes! 

You can see the reflection of my camera lens in the window-ha!  Shall I send them on over to your place??
All Gods Creatures Great and Small,
The Good Lord Loves Them One and ALL!

No, please don't! I have enough bugs here as it is... yikes! I know they all have a purpose, but not in my house!!!

I've never seen a real life manthis, only on TV and pictures.

Have a great day and be careful!

Oh, what happened? Did the post get lost?

I just said that I never had seen a real life manthis, only on TV, but if this post is twice, just ignore it, please.

Have a great weekend!
