Are you going to follow them all the way through to adulthood? 25 years ago I kept some mantids for several generations.... it was very interesting but quite hard work to keep them feed until I resorted to breeding blow flies.... much to the disapproval of nearly everyone who ventured into my room.

Great macro, very nicely composed and lit.
