We can never pass up the chance to take a picture of a praying mantis. They are part of our garden family. This picture was taken on the 7th. This may be the same praying mantis we saw climbing the palm tree earlier in the day. She was in a big hurry, and she looked a lot fatter.

She was not in hurry as she made her way across the picnic table. She paused to wash her face. Look at those black prickly things on her front legs. I've never noticed those before.

Check the label below for more pictures of other praying mantises. Click on these pictures to enlarge them.
