Love the site! Took this picture of a mantis that’s been around for a while and was wondering if you guys could tell me what’s happening. Is she about to lay some eggs? Is she dying? Also, inspired by all the ‘intimate’ moments I see posted, I have sent a picture I just took of two flies in the throes…
Your mantis photo is too blurry to post, but she does look like she is going to lay eggs. Hopefully she isn’t egg bound. Love the mating fly photo.
