My husband and I were outside late looking at the new light he had just installed above the garage door as part of the house renovation. I spied two Praying Mantises crawling up the old 1948 white wood boards that are awaiting new siding to cover their weathered exterior. We watched with curiosity and fascination as those little creatures crawled and then stopped and . . . prayed. What a simple pleasure it was to stand and watch, and point, and take pictures of a delight so rarely seen.
