just spotted!

It’s been almost exactly eight weeks since John’s praying mantis egg case dispensed the tiniest little creatures into his car. Since then, I haven’t come across any of the babies I managed to capture and release into our yard.

Until this morning…

He’s between 3 and 4″ long. So happy to see you, little guy! I hope your siblings are somewhere nearby.
