The bumblebee was on my tropical butterfly bush. Since he was not really into the photo-op, he refused to show his face.

It was moving day! Amid the hub-bub I looked down and saw this grasshopper nonchalantly munching away. Thank goodness for my iPhone camera!

Bumble Bee on a cool morning just about dawn. He was moving slowly, acrobatically, sometimes hanging on by two legs. He gradually pulled himself onto the leaf, and as the sunlight
approached, he took off.

Mantis seen after early morning watering. Our little dog was examining it. It didn't attempt to escape when picked up and placed it on the Sago Palm. Perhaps the extended wings were for defensive display, or drying or warming. In any case, after some minutes, it left.
