I'll try and make up for it, here's three new post of pictures that were taken in the last month.
I've been seeing a lot of Praying Mantis these last couple of weeks, maybe it's mating season. I'll assume the ones I saw alive were the females then ...
I remember seeing a few when I was a kid in Montreal, these are about the same size (~10cm) ... and just as vicious if you try and touch them.
Tonight I was cooking up some chooks on the barbie (chicken on the BBQ in Canadian english) when Clo spotted this little guy on the dining room floor.
