thought you might enjoy this image
i took it the other day next to my front door. feel free if you’d like to use it.

this one is from my nursery about a month ago. my camera battery died before they finished which is a real shame, because she turned on him and ate him.

Hi Pete,
We love both of your photos. The disobedient Preying Mantis and the “No Hunting” sign is exactly the type of image that we would include in a future calendar if we ever manage to produce another. Your mating Mantid image is also quite stunning, especially in light of the information you provided.
