I found a Mantis in Florida! LOL



OK...not a REAL one...but this puzzle mantid was crawling around in my succulents after I built him and took him out for a walk! I found him, and a few other kits to build insects today at a dollar store. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the kit for this. It was fun to build real quick, and his new home will be amongst the succlents in the screenroom. I will keep on the look out for some real ones though, even still!!!

OK, I know this is going to sound crazy but.......I've always been fascinated with dragonflies and when we first moved to Florida I was hoping to see them inmy yard. Well I didn't. Thenone year we installed a walk way aroundt he side of the house and it was so "blank" that I culdn't stand it so I used the house trimpaint to stencil a few different dragonfly patterns randomly along the walkway. Within a couple weeks we had dragonflies circling around, dozens of them! And, we have ever since. Could be coiencidence -could be the recognition of a familiar shape. Any dragonfly experts out there? Vickie

Soul B- thanks for the vote of confidence...it will be a miracle if I ever find one here...I think they must be easier to find in mid-north Florida.

Vickie- How cool is that??? Pretty neat! I had only seen this one guy when I was out taking pics, and then about 20 minutes later I walked out the front door and there were swarms of a larger variety flaying everywhere about 3-4 ft. off the lawn! That was cool.
