Praying Mantis (Mantis religiosa)
Praying Mantis (Mantis religiosa) - Evelyn Giefer sent us this praying mantis photo with the following comment: "Here is a picture of another wonderful creature photographed in my backyard. As I watched, he/she moved his back legs up to his mouth and groomed them one at a time. I was so close I could see his eyes and mouth parts moving! It was a moment of sheer wonder." Note the length of the praying mantis' right antenna, which is longer that the rest of his body.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
