11:42 pm - Mantids in My Yard
Hi! I thought I'd post a couple mantid photos I took around August 15th in my front yard. The egg case is from early in the year (in fact, it hatched in February, but I think the mantids made it amazingly enough. They were cold enough to just hang from the egg case until spring, and once they warmed up they dispersed). Perhaps this large mantis is one of the offspring from that case.
