First Steps

This is a very young praying mantis. It's translucent! I saw this one dangling from the casing (egg sac). The wind blew it and it grabbed the wall. It pulled free from the string. I saw its first steps.

Here's another one. It will dangle and wiggle out of an outer shell. It will make its way to the wall or drop to the ground.
