found this baby praying mantis while my sister was trying to pick these oregano leaves
(as a concoction for a cough remedy)

What a great photo - but it may have put me off oregano for life!

The photo is interesting and unusual just showing the underside of the leaf and then I read about the praying mantis and saw the picture tand that made it even more interesting.

Hope she took the mantis off before using the leaf for her medicine. Good image though.

Cheers Mark

She did, that's why I had the opportunity to take the baby praying mantis' picture; it jumped real fast from one leaf to another! :)
thanks for visiting!

@ Topveg and Sara:
many thanks for dropping by, too!
really appreciate it! :)

Very cool! I've only seen a praying mantis a few times in my life - but you have them in your garden! Lucky :)

Great photo. The underside of the leaf provides a little seen, and interesting, perspective.

Dropping after seeing your comment on my blog. Your praying mantis is so cute and little. I think they are a fun insect to watch and study.
