First sighting this summer!
I love mantids because they are so exceptional-looking, and as they stay in one spot or move slowly much of the time, they're an easy bug to watch. And, they don't try to fly in your mouth or skitter up yer leg, like so many other insects.
What I hate about them is their omniverous nature. They don't just eat aphids and mosquitos and pests like that, they also eat ladybugs, butterflies, spiders and other beneficials. (There
are pictures of them eating hummingbirds, but I can't find authority on that.)
(Sigh) It's a jungle out there.

...at least that's been updated recently.
I might just do that. I mean, the photo descriptor field is just about as much space as I need for my average post. I'm a sentence-fragment-or-two sort of person, not a proper essayist (like some people I know.)
