_MG_7875 Wayward Child on Scarlette Leucothoe

_MG_7875 Wayward Child on Scarlette Leucothoe

Day 25, declaring its independence from a potted plant on the upper deck. I suspect I will see no more mantids unless weeks from now a mature one shows up. Update: It wasn't the one that was in my eggplant pot, on "next"....

Canon EOS 20D
1/125s f/11.0 at 90.0mm iso800 full exif

The baby is leaving the nest! I do hope you get to see more.

Actually it's not quite an inch.

He appears large in this photo.

He looks quite fat and sassy so he must be finding enough to eat.

I'll bet others made that jump too. Have to go where the food is!
