Preying Mantis

I do not remember seeing them last year, but this year we have a number of Preying Mantis that arrive on the porch at sunset. This one decided to stick around for awhile and Tillie was just fascinated. Usually the little critters are stuck to the screen door, but this one decided to rest on the table, which is just at the perfect height for Tillie to get a good look. She was so funny. She kept turning her head and looking at me and then back to the mantis and then back to me. I guess she was waiting for some explanation for the creature.
