Blue: Praying From the Bottom, Up

Mantis

Do you suppose she is praying for her tasty, uhm, dearly departed mate?

Oops! OC, the scientist, says that this is likely a male Mantis.
He says he believes that the abdomen is too small for a female.
So ….
Do you suppose he’s looking for his mate for a little pre-dinner romp?
(One assumes he doesn’t know what’s on the menu.)

I offer this Praying Mantis as a dual post
for
Anna’s Project Blue
AND
Jeremiah’s, From the Ground, Up.

What is THAT?!

OC guessed right off — but then he uses it every day.  Do you know what this is?  Think, “From The Ground Up.” (That’s the title of the Photo Challenge being offered at, My World in Pictures, by Jeremiah Fargo.)

So, what is that in the picture?  Come on, give it a wild shot.

Yep.  You guessed right.  It’s the bedroom dresser.  I stretched out on the hardwood floor and took half a dozen photos.  This one was the best.  That bit of green you see at the top right is the corner of my extra pillow.  OC sleeps with two.  I prefer one, so the extra hangs out on the dresser when the bed isn’t made.

(And now you know I was running around taking photos when I hadn’t bothered to clean the house. Pft.  If you don’t like it, feel free to come scrub.)
