A Moment of Prayer
I felt like I was being watched, and there she was -- a lovely praying mantis peering in through the screen.
Mantids are impressively regal by the time autumn rolls around. Hard to believe that only a few short months ago they were tiny, skinny-armed hoodlums swaggering about the garden. Now the females have become slow and contemplative as they search for the best place to lay their eggs. This one seems mighty interested in our bedroom -- thank God for tight screens.
She is a pretty thing, though.
