Mantid Nymphs

There are lots of mantid nymphs in the garden. They are only tiny at the moment, but they will become huge before the summer is over (well, at least the females will). Praying Mantids are among my favorite insects and I’ve always been in awe of their perfection as predators. It’s wonderful to have so many in our garden.
