The mantises in my yard were tricky this year. Thought they were all gone, when who pops up in late October but this lady. Not long after I noticed her, I spied another, all green one. They have both laid their eggs - got to see one of them doing it - and the green one is still hanging out by the front door dining on caterpillars, spiders and stink bugs as of early November. Not too surprising as we had a batch that was born later than usual this summer, but it's so nice to see them still around.
