While moving some items in camp a few weeks ago, I spotted a baby Praying Mantis. It was on a pipe wrench laying on a table. The winds were up 20-25 mph constant and this little guy was just standing there like he owned the place.

It is certainly the smallest Mantis I've ever encountered, what do they eat when they are this small!

That's real neat, I think that's the smallest one I have ever seen as well.

I don't think he can even use that wrench.

He thinks he's a giant though. Those critters have some attitude. I was outside one day and an adult clamped down on my big toe with his front legs and chewed away like it was corn on the cob. I finally kicked him off but he bowed up again so I went into the house.
