Today I had a good friend from church come by with her 2-year-old grandson. Morgan spent the day going in and out with the toddler while we grown-ups got to visit. Brooke fixed us a nice lunch.
Once when Morgan and K. came inside, I noticed he had an insect on the collar of his shirt. I scooped it off, then looked at it to identify it.
It's a species of praying mantis called the Grass-like Mantid, Thesprotia graminis.
He really was a small little guy, probably less than two inches long. We released him outside on Brooke's lantana.
