Mantis

Hanging out on grapes of Carignan in l’Hirondelle!… mmm

Another installment of the nature channel portion of the blog.  I can just see you all clapping your hands with glee. This beauty is a praying mantis and a very patient mantis at that, showing off its wings long enough for me to take a picture.  I had the team on “mantis watch” as we harvested.
Here’s a sample of what they found.
