the baby mantids hatched yesterday-

So about 2 months ago I found this weird thing under my rocking chair outside.  It turns out this is a mantid egg case!  So every other time I would take Mitzu outside I would check and check to see if anything came out of it...and nothing.  Finally I gave up thinking it was a dud or maybe not even an egg case!  Then...yesterday...I went outside mid-afternoon to see bugs all over my rocker.  Well, they weren't just any bugs!  They were baby, itty bitty mantids!!!!!  I ran for my camera, took lots of photos and even some video!
 This one was on my arm!!!
on top of the rocker!
upside down on a flower!
