Baby Mantis

Australia still surprises me in little ways. As I go about my normal chores something small will catch my attention and remind me that I am a long way from where I grew up. Today as I hung out the washing I stopped as something moved on the peg next to my hand. It was a tiny Praying Mantis no bigger than the size of my fingernail. I let it walk onto my hand and showed the kids and then sat him gently onto the Rosemary plant. One quick photo on my phone and then he quickly scurried away leaving me to my laundry with a smile on my face!

  1. This is a lovely picture, I am surprised that it was taken with a phone (maybe you are a Cartier Bresson in disguise?).
