77/366: green on green

As I was pruning the English box I discovered a praying mantis, so I carefully avoided that area with the hedge trimmer, and then ran inside to retrieve my camera.

Captured for posterity, the praying mantis is camouflaged against the backdrop of its green surrounds. Whether it is a gecko on the red rocks at Kings Canyon in my blog princesswonderlandinalice, or an insect in my garden, I am always fascinated by the ability of creatures to adapt to their environment and take measures to ensure their survival.
