Adventures With Mantis: My boyfriend is…a girlfriend?

Hooray – saw Mantis again today! I have been worrying about the whereabouts of my favorite insect, because I had seen neither hide nor thorax for over a week.

Today though, a sighting:

Phew! Looking healthy & adorable, as always.

However, I noticed something else; a thick(ish) abdomen and vestigial wings…. Signs that Mantis is actually a ladyfriend. Also, a sign that I will need to make sure she gets enough water, as she isn’t exactly traveling far.

I’m still in love though. Cute is cute.
