It was hard to get the Bug of the Week photograph this week because we’ve been having a lot of gusting wind. Wind tends to interfere both by causing the plant to move about and also causing the light to flicker as branches move by.

In fact I was downloading some plant photographs when I noticed this:

thai-basil-plant045Do you see it? No, not the Thai basil plant, but the insect.

I admit I didn’t see it until the photograph was on my computer screen. When I went back out, there it was.

mini-mantis-be014Do you see it now?
