I was outside taking a walk around the yard and snapping a few pictures earlier today. I had planned on working in the yard some but it was a cold and blustery 55° and too cold for me to stay out for very long.
While outside, I stopped to look at the mums and noticed a praying mantis.
As I was standing there, a fly landed nearby and I watched to see if the mantis was going to attempt to catch it.
It did, but missed. I wonder if insects have the capability to think. I could just imagine this one whining and having a little temper tantrum because it missed an opportunity for lunch.
It certainly gave me a look...
and it's probably a very good thing I don't know what it's thinking!!!
