Uzzi and I were eating supper last evening when Uzzi yelled, “What’s that!?” When I looked up, he was staring at a wooden fence post. I ambled over to take a look and perched on the post was the biggest bug I’ve ever seen!
In May, I purchased a praying-mantis egg case from a local nursery and put it out into the garden. A few weeks later, the eggs hatched, and initially, several hundred baby praying mantises were clinging to my plants.
