A Walk with a Praying Mantis

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.

Love it Hallie! Next time you can take a praying mantis on a scooter ride. Seth brought home a praying mantis fromt he park the other day and we were hoping that it would eat all the gross spiders around our house. Too bad it hung out on our driveway and got run over :(
