Nature in the Garden


Praying Manthis video...


This was just shot.
A welcomed critter spotted this morning...

Haven't seen one in years. It's a great spot for him
to hang out; lots of visiting insects love lotus.

The lotus bud is 4 1/2" long, It's going to flower
today.

Here he is, "The head of insect control"

Great shot. If they are happy in your garden you can buy more.

Hope the things eat ticks as I have read Lyme Disease is rampant this season. The two people I know that got the sickest and needed IVs to the heart and all that got bitten somewhere on Long Island.

Thanks Steven, we did that one year with ladybugs. Bought a container
of them; released them at night, and then they disappeared.

Also, one time years ago we found a praying Mantis nest in our yard.
We hatched them in a jar...there were hundreds of them. After the
release, they disappeared as well. oh well.
