a photo a day ~ 6 (Praying Mantis)
Dirk and me saw a praying mantis in the garden, but we thought it was a 'wandelende tak'/ stick insect at first but then we called the girls and they told us: NO, this is a praying mantis!!
And they were so right!!
These girls are so much smarter than us in the animal world.....
I asked them to pick it up, so I could take a close up photo, but they didn't want to do that since these animals can bite. I didn't believe them, so I googled it and YEP they were right AGAIN! Although it only bites like an ant bite, so doesn't really hurt that much but Jasmine and Juliet were not in the mood even for an ant bite... so I just took a picture in the grass....
Oh well, I can't make them do anything these days anymore :-(
Are your children such good listeners and do whatever you ask them to do??
Ciao, M xx
