I found this beautiful praying mantis in my garden. What a brilliant creature he is. I have also found the praying mantis to be a very docile bug. This one, as others of his ilk have done in the past, let me carry him about and pose him on a few of my garden plants. I wonder if he came from the mantis pod I found last winter and transported to my yard. Hopefully, I will find another one this year and have a new generation of mantis hatch in my yard this spring.
