A praying mantis with a line of colorful dots on its back
She has a variety of gernaium with a white flower which has a red dot in the middle!
Now to explain who the doggy critter is in the photos below, I have to give a bit of history. Junior, a long, low, floppy-eared dog who belongs to my neighbors, Gavin and Janine, has a vendetta against Skabenga. Ever since we moved in. For no rhyme or reason. She. Just. Does.Not.Like.Him!
Whenever, Skabby and I go out for a walk, Junior is outside their gate waiting to attack him. She lurches herself at his heels, barking furiously, as he's walking along. If he stops and turns around to look at her - just look at her, mind - she yelps hysterically, runs off and sits a distance away watching him.
Yesterday, this ritual, which is repeated daily, took place again. Then the garden lady called Junior into the garden, and closed the gate. Skabenga and I proceeded on our walk.
On our return, Skabenga as usual running ahead of me, I looked into a field and saw Junior popping up behind a bank. She'd been lying in wait to pounce on the enemy who by now had long gone.
I said: Junior, Skabenga is long gone, so you won't catch him.
She had the grace to look embarrassed and slunk off home by another route altogether!
Junior, waiting to way lay the enemy!
