Life in little

And now to my favorite pictures.... a baby Praying Mantis!
I found him perched on my leg! He is so lucky I didn't swat him when I felt something crawling on me.
This little guy was quite speedy and was running all over while I tried to take pictures. Fortunately my camera and its noises scared him so he would freeze and try to blend in. After I tucked him into the flower garden I noticed several other baby mantises skittering around - hopefully I didn't squish any :(

To help keep perspective, that is my spoon ring he is perched on top of! So tiny!


  1. How adorable!!! I love little things..especially cool little creatures like your baby mantis friend.


  2. I want it!!! but only if it stays little

  3. These are stunning photographs! I love them all but the baby mantis on your ring is a remarkable shot. Though, with my only phobia being of the insect variety, it does make my hair stand on end a little. But only a little because it is so cute in it's own little bug way.


  4. Great photos of the baby mantis! Wow!

  5. Oh my goodness! Is he... or she... not the cutest little thing you ever did see? I want him... or her!
