Meet George

Some of you might have read the post I  previously made at my other blog about the  good insects in our  backyard.  I have seen two  praying mantis a couple of weeks and  some grasshoppers.    The big praying mantis   did not leave at all, he is still in our garden until now.  For the first two weeks, he stayed at my  vegetable garden and now he is in our flower bed.
We  greet him everyday and Ms. Burrito gave him a name, George.
Now George is  our additional pet here at our home.  Every morning, we always look if he is still there, and he is.  The kids always greets him "Hi George."
Pray for us too George, okay?

When we were growing up, we were told to keep away from these critters. They would spit in or eyes and put them out.

Amazing photographs of George, I've never seen one up close and personal, so this was close enough for me!

I love these critters! I once found the nest with the tiny praying mantises hatching out. Wonderful sight. Loved seeing them get larger after each molt.

Enjoy!

I have never liked Praying Mantis. They are just so creepy looking to me. I steer clear of them
You capyured some very close up photos of "George". But, I am glad he is at your place and not mine.

George, the praying mantis, loves your vegetable and flower garden. He must love the atmosphere of your garden and the kindness of the people around. He must be praying for you all. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
