Sunday Spinelessness - You don't know the trouble you're in
A scene from the garden. On the left, the New Zealand Praying Mantis Orthodera novaezealandiae. On the right, a hover-fly that doesn't know how much trouble it's in.
(for those interested in the final result: the hover-fly flew off; the mantis lunged, but missed)
(I clicked through to your profile to make sure you were that pete, and thought for a second you'd rekindled your blog. In fact, it's just been almost exactly two years since it was left to go to seed ;)
