Praying Mantis in the Rain

 Two wet days mean the big flies have stayed under cover. The praying mantis has not eaten since the day before yesterday. Nevertheless she remains on her leaf in the open, ready to snatch anything that comes within reach. By early evening she was still there and the rain had become heavier.

She was out very early this morning, in spite of the rain.
Sometimes a small fly came tantalisingly close.
