Bug of the Week: Mini Praying Mantis Nymph

Back to the hollyhocks.

The light is so lovely on the white flowers.

Wait, what’s that on the stem below the buds at the top?

It is a tiny praying mantis nymph.

Too cute.

Have you ever seen a newly-hatched praying mantis nymph?

    Why are baby animals so cute, even bugs? Great shots.
