Several times over the course of the summer, I've found a helpful mantis puttering around in my garden, and I've always done my best to not disturb her.
Today when I decided to mow the lawn when I got home from work, and luckily I'm used to keeping an eye out for toys and rocks the kids leave in the yard, so I was able to spot my favorite mantis before accidentally running her over. In fact, I had to dodge her about 3 times, before leaving a 3 X 3 area unmowed.
Stupid? Maybe, but I just think they are neat bugs.
In other news, I'm fairly pleased with the pictures my new Droid 4 takes.
