Big Bug Season


This is the time of year when we start to see the bigger bugs come out to eat the other bugs. Have you seen any of these huge Predator Bugs in your garden yet this year? These guys are really interesting to see each year... Ive always been fascinated by the way that the Praying Mantis appears to have such alien intelligence ...I actually found one of these guys inside my house last week. I was opening the blinds on the backdoor and he was on the blinds. He flew into my face and startled me pretty good. Though these guys are quite large thankfully they are harmless to us...when they fly , a large 1 is like a softball size. very startling at 6 am. lol..

Love the pictures! They're really cool. I have a few from years ago, a praying mantis lived in a patch of impatiens on my front porch. Fun to be able to capture these creatures on film.
