The Aliens have landed …right outside my bathroom window!

I’ve been lucky enough to live in a neighborhood that is apparently “Happy Mantisland.” I’ve noticed them every year since we moved here 18 years ago. They are one of my favorite insects!

The praying mantis is an amazing predatory insect. It they were as big as, say, a Chihuahua, it wouldn’t be safe to go outside! /Gary
