part of our science lessons have been on insects....including
the very beneficial mantids......praying mantis.
we were fortunate enough to capture a very large one about a week ago.
today we are releasing him. to go into the garden and do his job.
he eats lots of insects....we know we were feeding him this last week.
he was taking his time to leave...preening himself.
it was a great time to observe him in the sunshine.
although she had made quite a friend.
hard to take your gaze away from him.
