Preying Mantis Population - Welcome!

I am thrilled with the increase in our garden's preying mantis population. I'm pretty sure that the nest in the photo belongs to them. I've found dozens of these nests this year as well as what seems like hundreds of babies like the one in this pic. As you likely know they're great bug eaters and good garden friends.

I know the feeling, it's like having little guardians posted about your garden.

p.s I've been following you guys on and off for several months. Your blog is incredible and I think what you two are doing is important. Kudos.
