After our Mantis nymphs were born and released during less-than-ideal weather circumstances in April we've spent the summer with our eyes peeled for any sign of them. But, alas, not a single mantis was spotted! Abel snapped these two pics of the same stately guy just today. He could be doing a little better job with the mosquitoes that have been eating me alive all summer (ahem!) and I desperately hope he has some hidden friends! But, mostly, I can't wait to order another round of Praying Mantis or other creepy crawlies next spring!

  1. Hooray for your survivor! We found one of ours sitting on a tomato plant a month or so ago. It was VERY exciting.

  2. Wow!! We haven't seen any of our guys in a while now, so I can live vicariously through you and your fabulous pictures! :)


Comments make my day. Thanks!
