Welcome Home, Praying Mantis

A few months back we found a Praying Mantis egg sack on the garden site. In order to protect it from accidentally being eaten by an Eco-Goat or damaged in other construction, our Farm Manager volunteered to take it home. Sometime in the last few weeks, the babies spilled out and ventured into the world. All except for one, that is... who showed up on the dashboard of the Farm Manager's vehicle this morning - as if to say "Can I go back to the garden site with you?"

And so the two of them travelled to the garden site where both enjoyed morning sun and conversations about beneficial insects.
