Praying Mantis

   This charismatic little guy crawled up the back step when I was letting the dog in this morning. 

  It shows a remarkable number of different expressions despite the exoskeleton. 

Looking for a swim?

Looking down his antennae at me.

   Because of the lack of rain lately I haven't had to cut the lawn in a couple of weeks.  I didn't think the grass was so long that a 3-inch long insect would have to scale the blades to see above the canopy.
He sees something.     Where?

Over there.

Bath time.

Removing the spider webs.
