A nosy neighbor

I was fixing my lunch/dinner for work when Trin called me into our bedroom. Turns out we have a really nosy…praying mantis. We did a little bit of moving around to get a better look at it – from the left to the right and back again – and noticed its little head (it’s upside down) was swiveling as we moved from side to side. Scary – an insect that watches you intently. Sheesh.

First thing Trin did next was to look it up on Wikipedia. What was he looking for? He wanted to make sure it wasn’t harmful to humans and he was reassured – none of the 2,300 species are poisonous.

But it’s still a big bug. And when I got home tonight it was still watching us!
