Painting and Preying (Mantises that is)
I really do need to get into painting form as my current level of production is really very poor. The weather has just been too nice to spend time indoors.
This weekend was eventful. On Saturday we had 30 mile an hour winds and I went to check on the sail boat and while aboard retying the sail cover managed to fall and bang my head and almost go into the drink despite the boar being tied up in the slip - it was very rough. Still it was an ignoble way to get injured but a good reminder that going out alone isn't the best of ideas. Has I been underway and this happened, the outcome may have been much worse. I left the marina with and bloody head, a headache and a damaged ego but none-the-worse for wear. For those of you who are concerned, rest assured my rock filled head did little damage to the Bucentaure's deck.
As garden protectors, Mantis's are cool to watch but not all that effective as they eat anything - both good and bad bugs.
