Praying Mantis

Saturday, Prince and I went to see David Roger's Big Bugs at Cheekwood. They will be on display until August 31st. This guy weighs 1,200 pounds and is and it is 18 feet long and 20 feet wide. It is made from black locust. It was the only one that the height was not given. But you could put two of me at 5' 3 " each under the front end and have more room. In the background the little houses titled "Little Bitty Pretty One" by Patrick Dougherty. He combines his carpentry skills with his love of nature and creates giant , tangled works made entirely from tree saplings. Cheekwood has extended the Friday nights hours to ten through October. I want to go back and see the bugs under the lights. 
The Kitty Justice is that this bug is made from wood and not real.

My goodness! That's enough to scare the other bugs away! ;)

That's the truth. Glad they are real wood and not real bugs. Peace
