A couple of days ago we found a sweet little gift tied to a bush out front - a praying mantis egg sack! Praying mantis are great in the garden because they eat all sorts of pesky little pests that nibble on garden treats. We have no idea who left it, but thank you so much!
And thanks to wikipedia, I see that praying mantis are named that because of their "prayer-like stance."
