A WING & A PREYER
Teri, called me outside this afternoon to take a picture of a bug. She told me to hurry, as she didn`t know if it would stick around. I was in the shower, but when she calls I`m on it. This is the bug, a praying mantis. It is quite unusual to see this insect here. They are only seen here, from my experience, when it has been hotter than normal. We quickly became friends & after a few shots, she decided to climb onto my hand. She may have been wanting my hand in marriage because she kept licking her lips. They do have lips right?
Anyway, I`ve only seen three of these insects in the many years I`ve lived at the beach.
I don`t know how material the fact is, that the same thing happened to IVG yesterday. It seems that they are wearing different contact lenses, or it`s sunnier where IVG is.
IVG`s Mantis friend has dark blue eyes it seems. This one`s eyes are so light, they were hard to see.
Hopefully, this one will also stick around the gardens here.

Everyone please have a safe weekend, & always remember to be cool.
