Too hot to play

It is too hot to be outside.
The thermometer reads 99 F.

I filled the bird baths.

I filled the butterfly and bug bowls with water.

It is so very hot.

The mantis agrees with me.

I agree with you too. It is too darned hot to be outside. I just came in from watering the pots. Everything looks droopy outside. Your shots of the mantis are good.

Hit 102 in the greenhouse today. Not the best day to clean the place out.

What an amazing creature that is, we have nothing like it here. We have had beautiful weather today but nothing like your temperature, that would be too much for me :)

Finally, finally we get some good hot summer weather - well not as hot as yours. Comfortable for us.
Your mantis looks hot too.

:o) Best Mantis shots I've seen. It's a comfortable 90 here. When the humidity climbs, we're in trouble!

Stay cool, Sherry!
