Day 636 Sunflower and Praying Mantis
I was playing with my dogs out back and took a look at one of the sunflowers I planted earlier this summer, when I noticed a baby praying mantis sitting on the head of one of them. Of course I had to take it's picture, but the lighting conditions were horrendous! I took a picture also of one of the smaller sunflowers just to get a good look at it. I am surprised to find out that all the ruffly stuff I never really paid attention to, were tiny little flowers in the shape of a five point stars. How cool is that! a hundred tiny flowers in the head of one big flower. I can't wait until the head of the largest sunflower is ready to seed so I can bring it inside to photograph with lights.
