Good morning everyone and Happy Hug a Bug Day. While perusing my 2011 bug file for something to post today I came across this Chinese Mantis (Tenodera sinensis) I photographed in August at the reclaimed strip mine. I know, I posted two other series of different Chinese Mantis from last season, but I thought one more wouldn't hurt.


As for these photos, they're all of the same male, an immature one at that as it wasn't fully grown. Maybe four inches (10 cm) in length. Fully grown they can easily reach six inches (15 cm). The nice thing about Mantids, is that they make for great photo subjects. They're not easily scared or intimidated and rarely fly or scurry away once spotted. They seem to be as curious about us as we are of them.


Thank you for stopping by...and I hope you have a truly nice day.

Miscanthus sinensis plumes grow even in freezing temps here in Minnesota.. I just loved how it looked with the sun shining on it and the wind blowing it's feathery plumes .


Thanks so much to everyone for your wonderful comments!! I really appreciate them!!! ; )

Yellow Bittern / Ixobrychus sinensis

To be honest, I chickened out of using the first title, "Don't Believe the Internet - The Cat Ate the Hummingbird!!!" I chickened out because I love all creatures (well the jury may be out on the Giant Water Bug) and I'm not a heartless bastard, my occasionally warped sense of humor came up with that title. I hope you forgive my moment of indiscretion. :)


At the end of summer I mowed the field I call my back yard and came across dozens of these guys in the grass and weeds. Sorry but each time I stopped and relocated them.

Chinese Mantis (Tenodera sinensis). This tiny immature (approx. 8 mm in size!) mantis did not want to hold still for a shot! It was moving too quickly in the brush so I coaxed it onto my hand.

* Para todos aquellos amigos de flickr que no tienen miedo a quedarse un rato pensando delante de una flor...


* Todo el universo se copió a sí mismo en su explosión e implosión continua. En su fuerza centrífuga que, como bumerang, volvía hacia su núcleo y se volvía centrípeta.

Las galaxias de las flores remedan ese estallido, ese “Fiat…” y esa perfección maravillosa para sólo vivir unos pocas horas…

Ante tanta belleza, cuando examino el interior de los androceos, granitos de polen, y su acción reproductiva en la planta, me quedo extasiado.

Es el caso del interior de este Hibisco Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cuando conseguí este macro.


* Evocación y recuerdo de la frase bíblica de Jesús, que aparece en el evangelio de Mateo 6; 27-28, y que puede servirnos de conclusión a nuestra interrogante.


…Considerate lilia agri, quomodo crescunt:

non laborant, neque nent.

Dico autem vobis, quoniam nec Salomon,

in omni gloria sua, vestiebatur sicut ex istis unum…


…Mirad los lirios del campo, cómo crecen:

no trabajan, ni hilan.

Y sin embargo os digo que ni el mismo Salomón,

con toda su gloria, se vistió como uno de ellos…


(S. MATEO. Evangelio.)
