Micro Mantis

The Smallest Praying Mantis

While trimming my bonsai trees today I came across this bug that I thought was a mosquito, some say the state bird of South Carolina. After further investigation I noticed it was the smallest Praying Mantis I have ever seen! It was not even 3/8”. Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Dog, Crows, Eagle

As two crows fly with an eagle

This morning Ryker with his with crows was letting us know he heard them. It was a strange time in the day to hear that, so I looked to see what was going on and there were five crows chattering around a bald eagle across the lagoon from our backyard. It was a sight to see, thinking I’d miss getting a photo opportunity I went and grab the camera anyway. I managed to get some decent shots. What do you think?
