Baby Praying Mantis in the garden!
It looks just like this baby mantis on a blade of grass (I did not take this picture - I am still having trouble resizing my pics - any advice?). It is about 3/4 of an inch long and just adorable. I hope that finding one means there are more. Mantises are one of N's favorite insects so it was so exciting to see one in real life and not just read about one.
Here's a cute website that is linked in the Usborne Book Bugs. Click on the mantis's mug shot to read fun mantis facts. You can email me or leave a comment for more information about Usborne's Internet Linked Books.
