We were thrilled to see this immature California Mantis,
Stagmomantis californicus, crawling up the screen door, moving toward the porch light where the moths were circling.  We love our first Mantis sighting each year, and the porch light is often a lure because of the bounty of food.  This morning, the little guy was perched on the picture window.
