Crowded at the Top

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Many of the praying mantis egg cases hatched on the same day, and most of the rest the following day. A couple days later, there were hardly any to be found; they quickly spread out and disappear into the vegetation. They're about a month later than normal.

You're welcome, Peter; my pleasure. I will photograph the little critters as they grow, if I can, but they are really hard to find once they melt into the vegetation.

LOL Art! They must have to start with tiny creatures like aphids and ants and work their way up.
