Gary-For all those people who don't believe aliens exist, your picture should convince them.

LOL ! I like mantids, but they DO look like aliens from outer space (maybe because one of the 50's sci-fi movies starred Giant mantids, but I think they would affect us like that anyway.) The mama stays near the egg case after laying it, and usually dies during the winter before the babies hatch. They eat garden pests and are a beneficial insect that some folks buy to add to their garden. I'm glad we are much bigger than they are since they are very predatory, but it is safe to pick one up if it flies into your house by accident and place it back outside where it can rid you of mosquitoes, gnats, flies, roaches, etc. (along with an occasional bee or other mantis).

well with these two I'll say, the light was terrible but I needed the exercise so I grabbed my camera and went for a walk
Nasturtium and Olbaldy- I never thought of Queen Anne's lace as an art object, but both your pictures are fantastic. You inspired me to go out to take some shots of my weeds. Did you know there's usually a "rose" in the center of the lace. I'm posting a couple of shots to show you. Nowhere near as good as yours, I don't have a macro lens and my flower mode on my point and shoot is not up to something that tiny so the closeup is rather blurry.
By the way, here Queen Anne's lace is also called Wild Carrot. If you pull it up you'll see why.

...Along with their husbands after they mate. Although I read that only happens 5-30% of the time, but what guy would want to take that chance.

A very interesting capture, CJ, for both you and the mantis.
