A nice thing about today:

A praying mantis was hanging on to the outside of the window screen this afternoon. When[personal profile] juli walked past it to get the mail, it waved its legs ferociously at her. It was adorablevery scary. [personal profile] juli is probably a little large to be eaten by even a very fierce praying mantis, though.

I had to extract another one from my house today, this time from the planter in the living room where it was jumping around and making a godawful racket amidst the houseplants.

It was annoying to have a praying mantis racketing around in the house, but I am really quite fond of them as they are dedicated pest-eaters. So even if they are in human territory, I will go to considerable lengths in order to rescue them and transfer them safely outside.
