From November to April, keep your eyes open for one of these gems. It’s a #prayingmantis egg sac. Each sac contains up to 300 eggs, but only about a fifth of these will survive the adulthood. That’s still a lot of beneficial predators hatching into the garden!
The last picture I ever took of Lilith. I unfortunately never took any photos of her final stages of life, in which she grew larger and grew wings. She was very pretty and I will miss her. (Also I am aware that she was *technically* male but also idgaf)
