Aging in Place in the Garden – Praying Mantis Series

So many of us gardeners find praying mantis captivating. For me, I am captured by their seeming dreamlike attitude. They don’t cavort like butterflies or bees. They seem to be waiting for something to happen. I add my DH’s pictures of them from this season and then link to others that I have found as captivating in photo form as in real life.
