Praying Mantis - Learning from Nature


One should pay attention to even the smallest crawling creature for these too may have a valuable lesson to teach us.
~ Black Elk
About the image: Taken in June 2011 - I found him after he had emerged from his exoskeleton. This was the first time I realized that they molted and leave behind their old skin.
You can see his molted Exoskeleton - HERE

Hmmm....I had a black spider in my tea pot this morning. I'm not sure what nature is trying to tell me. LOL!

Happy Easter Kerri!

My favorite bug. I first saw one as a child and kept it for an afternoon in a cigar box before realizing I had to set it free. Awesome photo!
