I have 100s of babies this morning!

This morning my praying mantis eggs hatched and I woke up to find hundreds of sweet little praying critters. I released them into my garden in the back and there is a huge field behind my house so they will have plenty of food. (Or provide food :persevere: circle of life and all that) So amazing to see these tiny delicate babies.

That’s so amazing! We had a clutch of praying mantis eggs in our greenhouse when we lived in Oregon. I was amazed when they all hatched and little babies were everywhere! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Sarall Yeah, I bought them at the local Lowe’s.

I was worried about them today because it was raining but they are all fine, hanging out in all the leaves. :leaves:
