This little guy paid us a visit this morning. Itʻs a belief here in Hawaii that a praying mantis that comes to visit you is bringing you good fortune. Iʻll take it! Thank you Mr. Mantis.
He was actually on my momʻs car when we first spotted him. I gently scooped him up so I could relocate him to a safer space (black car + bright green mantis = happy bird, not so happy mantis). The green shrubbery next to my apartment worked out just fine and made for a perfect photo-op. Iʻm really ʻprayingʻ Mr. Mantis brings me some good fortune this year. I could definitely use it!
