Praying mantis was here for a visit

I've been decorating for Hallowe'en, it didn't seem to dissuade the praying mantis!
This is who I spotted
coming around the corner of the house.
Hubby has this funny streak, and brought home a gift for me from the antique junk store.

 Then, I looked at the door frame...

The last one I spotted was brown.
Whatcha lookin' at, sistah?

I put it on a stick, and into a planter.

It didn't seem too worried.

They sure are an unusual insect When I taught school, one year I had one in the classroom for a while for the kids to watch. - Margy

It's great that somebody has a silly sense of humor and greater when somebody can enjoy that sense of silly humor.

Some people probably think the mantis is the scariest thing in this post. (But I like bugs and especially this one!)

Gracious! I thought the praying mantis was a Halloween decoration too!

I'd like to do it up for Halloween this year, too.
