Little green monster
Just want to live like us all
We each have a place
I first saw this tiny praying mantis inside on the window ledge in our bedroom. I carefully shooed him out of the window so he could be free.
A few days later I was sitting out in the garden under the trees having a cuppa, when I noticed him on the chair with my coffee cup.
This was a marathon effort for such a teeny fellow; to climb down the wall and across an open expanse of 10 metres of grass. Then he had climbed up a wooden garden bench to settle on the upturned plastic garden chair that sits there when not in use!
He had then clung on when I took down the chair and placed it beside me as a table.
I guess he really wanted his picture taken again!
