Baby Praying Mantis

My kids recently discovered this cute little guy in our rose garden. A tiny, baby praying mantis.:)

They are fascinating creatures, but even more so when they’re this tiny. He was only about 1/2 to 3/4″ long and bright green in color with no markings yet. They really hop around a lot when they’re this small too, bouncing from one flower to another.

We hope he stays in our garden till he’s full grown! 😀

  1. Thanks for sharing the great photo. I have always thought praying mantis are cute when small in size, but the large ones are a tad intimidating in looks and actions! I realize they are friends of the gardeners and plants, so I like them anyway and find them so interesting to watch. They appear almost “alien” like!

    • I know what you mean – when they get larger they turn their head around to watch you, it can be fascinating but a little unsettling too, lol! 😀 They are great at taking care of the aphids on my roses though 🙂
