I found this tiny green, 3/4″ insect, on the back of my husband’s shirt the other evening. It was glorious outside and we were just about ready to dine, al fresco. I decided to quickly return it to the tomato plants. My husband had been watering the garden, and I figured that he, or more likely she, had come from that spot in our yard. I could see a pinpoint dot on the left eye and It reminded me of one of it’s ancestors, that I had come in contact with before, I’m sure. A couple of years ago, near this very same garden area was a much larger praying mantid. It was not happy to see me at all! It too, had it’s tiny left eye pointed at me. I found it on a dahlia, in-between the fragrant glut of gardenia’s and the vegetable garden.
