The mantis seizes the locust but does not see the yellow bird behind him. ~ Chinese Proverb


  1. I bet he did not know he was sitting for a portrait. It’s a lovely shot, particularly striking with that burst of mantis green against the background.


    • He was only about as big as the length of my thumb nail. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one so small. The aphids were making a mess of our sunflowers, so I was happy to have him there. 🙂
