Who's Your Daddy?

Doing some long-overdue garden clean up yesterday  afternoon...

...I cut out a dead stem, and noticed an egg pod.
Ah!  Who's your Daddy?

Mom ain't saying:

I wish I could store the pod and see them hatch, sort of.  Apparently some carnivorous behavior takes place.  I think I want to skip that.  I tucked the twig back securely inside the rose bush.  I've not seen the boyfriends again, but love was obviously in the air rose.

  2. Cool! We don't have praying manatee here, I would have had no idea that was an egg pod. :-)

  3. They seem a rather gruesome species. And like Deanne, I would not have known that was a mantis egg case.
