Check out this cool praying mantis!

It was on the car next to me in the parking lot at my work and I had to take a picture. After I took it he turned his head and looked right at me and all I could thing is “oh my gosh if he jumps on me I’m going to freak out!”.

In other bug news, there’s a resilient little spider living in the driver’s side mirror of my car. Every night he builds his web and every day on my drive to work it gets blown apart. This has been going on for two whole weeks. I think I have something to learn from him about perseverance!

My mom recently told me of this funny story of how she discovered a praying mantis on her neck while she was driving. She was so scared that she stopped the car in the middle of traffic and jumped out running around like a crazy person! A police officer was there ready to scold her and give her a ticket of some sort. But when she told him the story he took pity on her and let her drive off! I would’ve paid good money to see that! lol.

That’s hilarious! I once jumped out of a moving car because of a moth. Not one of my better moments and by “moving car” I mean it was very slowly pulling backward in a driveway. But still, crazy :)
