bug fun

We found this guy in the garden yesterday. I was so excited to see a real, live praying mantis in our yard! I've never seen one outside of the monsters inhabiting the bug house at the zoo. We had to (gently) examine it a bit before reinstalling it to the tomato box. It's a beneficial predator bug, so we're happy to give it a home. Go, mantis, go!

Love these guys! We cheated last year and bought an egg case from the hardware store. They didn't overwinter, though. It was fun bringing one for show and tell, however.
