Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Wild of the Week: Mantis

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Keith Vandermeir in Carol Stream emailed to look at the size of this mantis and I thought it made a pretty good WOTW.

Send nominations for WOTW, the occasional celebration of wild things around Chicago outdoors on Sundays on the Sun-Times outdoors page, to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.

Usually this time of the year, I am running Buck of the Week: Unplugged. I will run BOTW: Unplugged as long as photos keep coming.
