Mantis Mania returned to Sunshine Hill Gardens with the sighting of the Spring’s first praying mantis. And he’s so big: already an inch and a half long! No doubt this guy has been munching on lots of tasty bugs.

Last year, I put out two praying mantis egg cases and was lucky enough to see the hatchling mantids emerge from one of them. This year, I put out two more, but didn’t see them hatch so it really made me happy to see one today.
