Adventures With Mantis: wings!

I have now officially stopped trying to figure out if my favorite mantis is my boyfriend or my girlfriend. S/he molted again (found the husk right beside her, like a peeled sunburn) & now has a lovely set of wings. S/he can fly now! Yayz!

That probably means Mantis isn’t too much longer for my garden. Sigh.

I hope Mantis will stick around, but I understand the need to make baby mantises…Manti? forge a path of one’s own.

But you’ll always be my sweet little mantis to me, darlin’.
