Nature Study: Praying Mantis September 14, 2011

As the summer draws to a close, we find ourselves outside after dark quite a bit…mainly because we still have a lot of things to get done outdoors and it gets dark before 8:30 now!  Recently, we were working in the flower gardens getting them ready for fall planting.  While we were working, the kids were very excited to come across this little (or rather, not so little) one….


Pretty praying mantis walking across the flower bed.


She was really quite long too!


Monkey watching the praying mantis in a bucket (and hoping it doesn't jump up into her face...)
