Here's a little mantis I found on one of my abutilons:
I have too many in my yard this year, though! My love for mantids is grappling with my love for butterflies, and the mantids seem to be winning. I have very few butterflies so far this season, but I see a mantid nearly every 3' in the garden. I am thinking about moving some of the mantids to the schoolyard next door. Think they will just come right back?
