Bug Of The Day

And by "day" I mean last night:

I just never know what I'm going to find when I stepped outside.

When I stepped out this evening I nonetheless expected to find a baby praying mantis that I've been watching for the last few weeks (and haven't been able to photograph because he blends in so well with the ornamental grass he's been hanging out in), but... he was nowhere to be found.

I hope the half inch of rain we got this afternoon didn't wash him away.

And I really hope that the pea-size hail that came down for a few minutes didn't do him any harm.

It's not easy being a bug in Ohio.

Just in case you were wondering....


  1. Don't look now, but there's a fly in drag on your thistle.
    Drag on. Like a bi-plane.
    I guess I should stop now.
    Well, after I type the captcha.

  2. WOW! I call it the Bug o' the Decade!!! That beautiful bug just needs an Ohio lobbyist, then ALL will be well!

  3. Juicy this?
    You mighty hunter, you.
