Second post for Sunday

I had pregnant female praying mantis here last year, but I never could find any egg cases.  I wanted to see the babies hatch.  This fellow is already an inch or so long.  I saw the first one a couple of days ago. 


I love the way they will just stare at you.  This guy was a tad frightened, but he didn't run away completely.

We had a meal tonight that was all home grown.  Ribeye steak, new red potatoes, whole green beans, buttered beets, corn on the cob, and cucumber salad.  It was fantastic!

  1. The baby manis is adorable. Do you think these are babies of the one you saw last year? your lillies are way to beautiful

  2. I would imagine this is a baby from one of the ones I saw last year. I'm going to have to go back out and look for him again tomorrow.

  3. Cool, let me know what you think!

  4. Three of the grandkids came out today. I didn't get photos of anything except them!

  5. Oh how fun! I'll have to come and see what you posted.

  6. They don't hold still very long, so I had to be fast! LOL

  7. Boy I know what you mean, kids don't sit still very long.
