Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Hi everyone!

Thanks for all the kudos.....I'm just kicking myself (again!) for not following through
and putting the original & banner jpg together in the "banners" folder inside the
"NGA 2019" folder! I.e., I can't find the whole pic. D'Oh! D'Oh! D'Oh!

I've already searched several external & internal hard drives looking for it
without success. Crying

But if I do find it, will post asap.
I was taking pics of what few zinnias we have (more coming though),
& finally noticed this little mantis, tail up, ready to pounce on the first
fly that came near.

He/she turned their head to stare at me as if to say,
"Do you mind! I'm trying to have lunch here!"

They are special critters for sure. Smiling
