Praying Mantis Rescue
The Daughter and I went to the mall last night, and as we pulled onto the street we noticed a baby praying mantis clinging for dear life to the windshield. I drove slowly, but it became obvious the struggling bug would never last until we got to the mall. I pulled over to the side of the road, and The Daughter got out and let it hop up onto her hand so she could let it out in the bushes. We'd rather have kept it on our patio, but the closest refuge was best in this case.
The photo above is one I see scattered all over the web, sometimes sited as being from Wikipedia.
