Mrs J spotted this little mantis on one of her container daisies. It’s the first one we’ve seen this summer. I quite like these things. This one noticed the camera lens and scurried off a ways. They often stake out a territory. I’ve found them is the same general location day after day. This one is so small that an ant will be a good meal – something as large as a ladybug would be too much to tackle.

Have you seen this? Truth about the praying mantis.
Cool! He used one of my pics in the middle there.
He did?!?!?! Cool, I guess…but you should get credit. Which one? Also, too, I love his stuff.
It’s a still of a hummer looking at a mantis under a feeder. Just before the short clip of a mantis lunging for the hummer from atop another feeder.
(ETA: I fixed the link – TaMara)
I totally remember that!
