Baby Steps

Posted by Picasa

It may look like the surface of the moon, but it's the side of our house. Look closely. This little guy paused long enough for me to take his picture. Can you see him? He so, so tiny. He's a baby praying mantis. I took this picture with a special lens for close-ups.

I checked on the casings in the morning and noticed some activity. I missed the full exodus, but got this little guy's baby steps on camera. There's another casing on the roof garden. I hope we have lots of praying mantis!
