The Cricket in the Hearth...Not!

Saturday we took Banished Jr out to the Winter Wonderland. He loved it. All those robot elves and animated critters in a world of artificial fuzzy snow. We had to go around 3 times before we could go home.

But the one that really took my eye was this wonderfully seasonal Xmas mantis. I mean it was wrapped up warm as it turned from side to side in its little grotto complete with china cabinet, fireplace  and tiny tree. The red scarf looked warm and the pearls were an imaginative touch but still...

Its a mantis chaps. Just how Christmas is that?  

I'm sorry I don't have video for this, as lethal front leg wave was so cute.

Goldenrod seed heads with just a touch of frost at the weekend.
