Friday Fotos

The biped assistant (dad) over at The Thundering Herd mentioned that he was being stared at by a praying mantis at work the other day. Mom got all excited, she says loves praying mantises.
No kidding! She's weird like that.
And here I thought she liked her critters
cute & fluffy...
Can woo tell I'm wooless?

Me, Jack, wooless
Here's a few "praying mantis portraits" she took a few years ago when they discovered that there were hundreds of the critters in the long line of trees that bordered their home in OH. She said the little baby ones are more orangish and were pretty tough to photograph, but several adults were happy to have their pictures taken. If woo look close, some of the darn things are smiling. (Maybe they're as weird as our mom?)

Seen enough yet?



Bye bye, bugs!
A-roos to yous, & toodle-woo,
jack a-roo & miss moo, who are fuzzier & much cuter than praying mantises.

Bugs are one of the few things Jack does NOT try to eat! :)

We are with you Jack and are wooless too.

Praying wouldn't help those bugs if they tried to attack us, but as long as they were not flying around our head or landing on us we would leave them be.

I saw one of these walking along a railing at work. It was very interesting to watch it walk!

Our mom shot a couple pix of one just the other day! How cool.
Hey, I met one of those guys once. I was going to eat him until I saw he was praying. I mean ... that just doesn't seem right!
Play bows,

Typically when my mom has something staring at her, it's me!

The hu-dad said he thought the one on his window was cute - until it kept turning his head and watching him as he moved around. Then it started getting a little creepy.

I would take you over a praying mantis ANY day Jack!
