Rescuing a Praying Mantis (bug pictures included!)

We went along to pick Ruby up from calisthenics today and Alexander spotted a praying mantis in the middle of the car park.

He was concerned that it would either be squished by a car or spotted and eaten by a bird and while I am more inclined to try to shoo it over to the verge but otherwise leave it to its own devices rather than touch it, Alexander has no such qualms!

He did some kind of ‘mantis charming’ to get it to walk over onto his hand and then whisked it away to some wasteground where the beastie skulked away, completely ungrateful for the rescue!
