    We have a homing preying mantis.

    For the last two mornings this guy has been clinging to the mosquito net on the door by the daughter's home schooling station. Both mornings I have taken him out to a bush in the garden.

    Tonight while I was fishing the daughter ran down shouting, 'Dad, the mantis is back!'

    I hate to be disturbed while fishing, but that's family life.

    And here he was... back again, inside the house this time and eyeing up my moo palo.



    I took him back outside... but he seems to like us. Let's see if he's back tomorrow...

    ^ Interesting brown color Mendy. All the ones we have up in our parts are green. Likely could be an adaptation to the surrounding vegetation.

    My Meyers Lemon tree appears to love its new location. This morning I counted 9 flowers. The good news is it is finally in the ground versus a pot. I had been moving it all over trying to find it a place it liked. Love fresh Lemonade and of course the squeeze over salmon.

    It's freezing outside here now and I have been putting down extra bird seed. This is the kind of animal I hope to see on the trail cameras I bought to set up on our land. Not really sure if there will be anything though.

    I saw this fox out there today having some of the good stuff.

    It seemed pretty happy to hang out for a while.

    He had a pee on this tree on the way out. Just like a little dog.

    We've had a lot of common keelback snakes in the garden recently, probably because of the pond and frogs. The dogs hardly notice them and I have come close to treading on them more than once as they wander around the garden. Harmless, but if the wife sees them they are history...

    Anyway, this is the closest I've managed to get to one, took a while before it decided to slither away towards the pond...

    When I first came out here, I was afraid of anything that resembled a snake, but nowadays I hardly bother unless it's a banded krait or spitting cobra.

    Well a big surprise. 8 years ago i planted a tiny Lychee tree i bought at a market. Its taken years to get to any size at all, maybe its the soil or the local conditions but its grew painfully slow. Anyway I thought oh, new leaves, then looked closer and behold flowers. A very happy dad.

    How often do you see snakes in your garden? I had a couple of pit vipers and a python in my garden when I was living in Thailand, but it was only when I was out cycling on the roads when I would regular see the odd hissin' Sid or 7 (usually squashed).

    It would drive me crazy if my missus was in the habit of senselessly dispatching them to the next life.

    ^^^Nice snake pics Troy

    Soon to be in my garden will be a peach tree if I can get this to germinate. I managed to extract the seed from a peach pit while incurring only minor personal injury.

    Previously in my garden was this fook off giant hairy spider.
