A couple of our Mesquite trees lost major limbs during our last monsoon storm and Randy has spent the last couple weekends cutting down both trees. I know! In 110 degree heat. I know! He's crazy. And he still has a lot more work to do. Hey Honey, it ain't gettin done with you just sitting there.
I know. I'm heartless.
So I'm thinking photo op. And I start snapping away. But then I see Tyler looking at something?
Do you see what Tyler found in the bird bath?
A Praying Mantis. And I'm thinking... an even better photo op.
Praying mantis have very sensitive eyes that move in an 1800 angle and they can see predators at a distance of 60 feet.
The female praying mantis is known for her particular habit of biting the head off her partner while they are mating.
But you probably didn't need to know that.
