Happy Equinox, Preying Mantis. Your camouflage is beautiful for the new season, but it doesn’t work very well at dawn with the frame of the slider screen.
That is the corner of Captain Comic’s sleeve in the the house. He was fascinated. “What the heck IS that thing?”
I’ve been seeing preying mantii (is that how to pluralize them?) since springtime, and this is the first time one had brown. The others were all bright green. Do they change with the seasons? Do they change with age? Are some this way and some that? I have know idea, but prefer to keep it a mystery for the time being. Besides, I really need another cup of coffee.
