My husband found this, what I assume is a young praying mantis, while weed eating around the house. My 3 year old daughter was so excited when she came home, and found him waiting in a jar for her. I am not real pleased with the photo, since I could not get my daughter to stay still, but the little critter is cute none-the-less.
Thanks for sending us your photo of an immature Preying Mantis. It is so nice to see the appreciation of insects as a shared family experience.
