Drop-in Visitor

Walked in to the kitchen this morning, and noticed something at the bottom of a measuring cup on the counter. No idea where this little guy came from, but he certainly is cute!

Hatching Day

Several weeks ago, on a trip to Lowe’s as I was in line for checkout, I noticed they have mantis egg sacs for sale and picked one up on a whim. According to the container, it should hatch in two to six weeks (from when, they don’t specify). Probably close to six weeks on, this morning after we returned from church we saw that the terrarium where we placed it was jumping with baby mantises! They are adorable, of course, and hopefully will help to keep our local aphid population in check.

We have been releasing them in strategic places around the yard, which is trickier than it sounds because they don’t like to leave the terrarium. It’s a big world out there!

Leaning In

Started this one a while ago, then it went on the back burner for a bit. It’s the same couple from the last post; amazing how different they look with a change of position and lighting!

On the Threshold

A family of house finches is moving in to our patio roof. I can’t blame them, it’s getting nicer out there by the day.
