It is autumn, it is the Granada time, the explosive fruit, between grenade and pomegranate.
The mantis is "fishing", waiting for an incautious victim, and she has time.

Hi Mici! Yes I have a kaki in my orchade. The fruit will be sweet in two months, like the oranges and avocados.

I´m finishing the figs, grapes and prickly pears from my hobby land.

What seasonal fruits have you in your country?

No doubt...is a burst pomegranate.


I was playing with the words granada, grenade, granate, pomegranate..."The word "grenade" is derived from the Old French (pome) grenate ("pomegranate"), in reference to the general size of early grenades, and because its shrapnel pellets reminded soldiers of the seeds of this fruit."

abejaruco, such a great picture of the Mantis.  They have patience, you say, that is cool.  Have a wonderful day, best of life.  Cindi

I opened a pomegranate from my dad's garden today, it was very good, takes a while to suck all the pulp off the seeds but its a wonderful type of insanity. I have always been intrigued by the praying mantis, they are a most interesting insect, very regal. I happen to love the fruit from the prickly pear, may have to grow one one day.

They sell a spice liquid for drinks down in the Caribbean which is made mainly from pomegranates. It is called grenadine syrup. Always wondered where the grenadine came from...

The prickly pear, came from North America with Hernán Cortés, and actually has colonized Africa and the whole Mediterranean. It is so fresh and sweet, I always has a plate in the fridge.
