Praying at the Breakfast Table

Eating breakfast at the bench on our verandah this morning noticed a tiny insect – I was about to swat it away as you do when I realized what it was – a Praying Mantis. Thankfully it hung around long enough for me to get some macro shots – not easy when it keeps trying to hide inder your plate or in the shade of your coffee cup.
