I've always loved finding a praying mantises (some call it a preying mantis or praying mantis) in the garden. I found this one at cousin Jan's house in Colorado. As a child I was fascinated at their seemingly praying pose and thought they were very cool. I still do. (Don't forget...you can click on photos for a closer view.)
This particular mantises is a bit bedraggled for it is late in the season. It needed a bit of help in posing for the camera, falling off the geranium twice before I was able to get a photo. And since it is late in the evening as I type, this is just a reminder to you...don't forget to say your prayers tonight. It's the very best way to end the day.
