Diary 9/17/12

I had this Praying Mantis visit me while I was folding laundry outside yesterday.  I run the dryer for just a few minutes before I hang clothes up outside and they are not stiff that way. Saves $ and conserves energy and if I have the time, I like the fresh smell they have from being outside to sun dry.  Anyway, this guy was headed across the top of the table I use and it is like a desert island for an insect.  When he crawled to the other end, I lowered an Oak branch which he recognized as his escape route immediately and climbed aboard.  I watched him climb up the branch slowly for the next few minutes while I was folding.  When I came back out after a half an hour, I couldn't spot him anywhere. They could be called "Preying" Mantis as they really like to surprise and attack their fellow insects.
