I managed a few snaps as it crept around and behind the geranium leaves looking for shelter.
Although it looks magnified in the photo, due to my zooming in on it, the tiny praying mantis was only about and inch long
Back at home, my garden is thriving. Mainly with pumpkins (butternuts) and new potatoes. It's mid-summer here in South Africa and the temperatures have been unbearably hot and dry. Our rains just aren't arriving and the daily temps are in excess of 37 degrees Celsius / 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. The gem squashes in my garden are the size of a soccer ball.

Another lighter variety of the same gem squash
These two squashes are enough for a family of eight!

HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
