It’s hard to believe but true.
Between Saturday AM and now, Sunday PM, I’ve had fairly close encounters of one sort or another with the following:
2 mating praying mantus (would that be manti?)
a field mouse
a puppy (fully domesticated, but still counts in the tally)
The weirdest moment by far is captured in the above photo. I was taking a closeup and the larger female slowly turned her head and looked right at me.
“Do you mind?”
