It's an insect pic nonetheless

As tempting as it is to share the stick-bugs-making-babies photo I captured (somewhat by accident) this afternoon, I think it may be in poor taste so here is a spunky young praying mantis from a few evenings ago. I first spotted it perching on the tip of the patio umbrella at sundown, creating the perfect silhouette, but by the time I got back out with the camera it had made it to the highest point on our holly shrub/tree.

I promise to get back to educational posts tomorrow, folks. Or maybe even later tonight. Thanks for bearing with me.
