Walking to class just barely I found a praying mantis on the sidewalk! He was just crawling toward the grass, having a great October walk as well. So I decided that it would be a good idea to share a walk together! I picked him up and at first he was a little alarmed. He spread out his arms like he wanted to attack me! (like in that picture below, which I just read was their defense pose.) But then he realized what we were doing and he calmed down. We walked together to my class and I put him a the foot of a bush where I am sure there are buggers he can feed on. Bad bugs. Because he's a good praying mantis. Thanks for making my day, I really needed that.
People were around. And seemed disturbed. Whatever though they don't even know.
