Lunch with Monty

A day or so after I shot this photo of Monty eating his lunch, he flew the coop. Satch was quite upset. I told him that I was certain Monty must be somewhere in the yard because mantids usually stay put. One our way home from a lengthy walk, I spotted a huge mantis near the edge of a very busy intersection.

It's MONTY, mama, YOOK!

I scooped the creepy crawly into an empty bag and handed it to Satch. He held it so carefully while I pushed him home in the stroller and then released it in the garden.

Mama, I don't think it's Monty.

I think you're right.

I think it's a girl mantis.

You do?

Yes, I think her name is Safina.
