I can't believe it has taken me over 4 decades

to come across a brown praying mantis.  I found this critter on our pumpkin plant.

Or maybe it's because I've always been pretty oblivious :)

There WAS a site that I got to that said praying mantises could change color for camouflage.  I'm gonna have to find more sources for that...

THIS next critter though, we can do without. The $%$^&*@ squash bugs have been decimating our poor pumpkin plant and survived the Sevin Dust I sprinkled on there!
