Our newest "guest"

hanging out at the water dishes in Hummingbird country and walking away in the neighbor's driveway after being shooed away ,
it stopped and turned around as soon as it heard the faint click of my camera shutter.

I saw a three to four inch, maybe more I was so excited, praying mantis on my knock out rose bush the other night while watering! It was humongous! I ran into the house and shouted, "there's a huge bug in my garden!" (I have a rotten time coming up with the right word sometimes!) my daughter came out and confirmed when I was calmer that it was a praying mantis. This is my first year in my first garden and every discovery is magical. I wish I had my cell with me to take a pic!
