The visitor I was waiting for

Mantis. 😍 I always feel so blessed by their presence. This little one is hunting on my tomatoes. I want to sit outside and watch, but I know it can take hours. Gotta be quiet and not move a lot. 🤭 I wouldn’t want to scare his/her prey away. I want to offer one of the many boxelder bugs lurking around, but better I don’t interfere. (I’m watching one run away from a hide beetle that accidentally touched it. It’s kind of funny)

Did I ever tell about the time a jumping spider turned around to look at me as if to say, “Go away” because I was watching it dance for another spider? 😅

I’ve always wanted to see one-very cool!
@Plasticbag You never have? 🥺
I used to collect both with my kids when they were young. They loved bugs - I was slightly scared of them
I had a nest of them off my porch when I lived in Las Vegas, they're so fun to watch, and friendly to humans. Jumping spiders are really cool too.
@NativePortlander1970 I saw a tiny jumping spider earlier too. 🥰 So cute. But I couldn’t get a size comparison pic.
