While walking around the lake this morning, Gene and I came across a praying mantis! It was just hanging out on the sidewalk. I wouldn’t have noticed it if Gene didn’t point it out. I don’t see praying mantises very often so I thought it was cool. I tried getting as close as I dared to snap a picture of it. My phone sadly didn’t do a great job but it’s okay.
I enjoyed being able to see this bug, although I’m not sure why it was out in plain view. Hopefully it hopped to safety after we left. Cool start to the day.
