HAHAHAHAHA! TOTALLY! Thanks Dan, that's even more hillarious about the first and your cat on the couch!
I'm sure it's a bit harder to get a good shot of her catch, hahaha... or a tasteful one!
I mentioned that he brought a moth and a snake, both unharmed, right? Oh, I might have forgotten to mention the snake, omg... the cutest little thing, a young local grass snake! My wife was bouncing around in horror, hahaha. But it was the cutest thing, really. Both my wife and the snake. After I caught it, I carried it in my hand and kept it warm to relax a little. It liked it so much there, that it didn't really want to leave and I had to find the perfect place and convince it that it's safe. Unfortunately I was too fascinated with the little guy itself and liked it too much to fetch my camera. Next time I just keep it... I'm sure Panthy will accept him (or her) as a new friend.
Thanks, Dave! I never knew I trained him... must've been my years of explaining not to use his claws with my hands... ...or appearantly only use his claws with MY hands! :P
Thanks, Robert! I've come to think exactly that right after the mantis! I'm just not sure if I could call that "wild life" photography, hahahaha!
I'm really thrilled about all your reactions and so happy for the mantis, somehow! Thanks again!
