More mantis memories

Here is another favorite shot of the female mantis that I found near Batty’s deck a couple of weeks ago.  I’m not going to worry, for a while, about whether the images I may post are clickable for enlargement.  I’ve had several suggestions that I’ll be trying out.  Mantis 1286We’re going to be making our first run up to the cabin tomorrow to see how it fared through the winter, and plan to spend all day Monday there.  Of course, it’s supposed to be very cold, with a predicted high of 31°F and a low of 17, so we’ll be trying to keep very busy so we can stay warm.  I don’t know if there’s still ice on the lake, but I’ll find out soon!

    That’s one fine mantis. I’m accustomed to an all-green color scheme. This is a pretty fancy version. And I see you’ve worked out the enlargement issue — fun to see this one in full size.
