_MG_8444 Lurking in Eggplant.-53 days old

It's been about 5 days since I've seen a mantis. After a couple of days of heavy rains I spied this guy on an eggplant leaf. I'm hoping I will once see the one I discovered out front on the rue plant after not seeing any of the nymphs out there since they were just a few days old.

Canon EOS 20D
1/1600s f/2.8 at 60.0mm iso400 full exif

He looks like he's begging for a treat.
