Nancy the Praying Mantis

Nancy the Praying Mantis

Originally uploaded by thoughtbeast.

We have Praying Mantises all over our yard. I think they’re the result of the Mantis egg sack I ordered Liam a year ago. He was going to watch it hatch in a container. We kept the thing for many weeks until it looked like it was all dried up. I didn’t think it was going to hatch and I taped it to a bush in our backyard against the house, just in case. Evidently, it did hatch. I believe we are seeing the offspring of that egg sack. I named this Mantis Nancy. I found her as a tiny thing on the front porch. She has grown a lot eating the bugs!
