Watching You

About 33 years ago I sent my sister a greeting card that said, "Be Alert. (open the card) The world needs more lerts." This praying mantis sure looks like a lert to me...

Sharing space on the same sumac with the mantid were several Sumac Flea Beetles, Blepharida rhois. Cute little beetles - I've never noticed them before.

On the ground nearby, an Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) caught some afternoon rays.

We saw several other interesting things on our walk this afternoon, but I will have to save them for later. Time for bed, I'm afraid. Got to get up and go to work tomorrow...
