Oh, woe is me...

"It was tough enough trying to grab lunch and then this guy picks me up sticks me in his studio with not a mosquito in sight."
     This is the first brown mantis I've seen in four years of keeping an eye out for them. I was cleaning the garden tiles one Sunday morning and swept this fellow into the dustpan. He hopped out, shook himself off and looked around. I stuck out my hand and he hopped on and I took him indoors and put him on the G1 against black velvet.
     He's not really so wobegone here... he's cleaning his antenna with his forearm.
