Absolutely cool! And a friend at my house. Lovey dubby
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Great banner Fleur!
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.

Awesome banner! Flowers are beautiful, but I love banners like this to mix it up!

Really wonderful banner, Fleur. A brilliant photo of a fascinating creature that we don't have here. Lovey dubby I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you.

Hey Mika, you can buy them in the UK! They'd probably have to be pets and couldn't survive outside in the garden.

Thanks, Karen! There are some with amazing colours - no idea about how to care for them, but I'll have a look.

It would be fun to have them if it was possible to give them the right care and food. They're fascinating to watch. We have green ones and brown ones here in NM.

Usually a friend but a foe to butterflies, even hummingbirds.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I learned quite a few interesting facts from this banner. Thank you for participating with your comments and good marks on the Mantis.
