It seems that my Praying Mantis has claimed one of the bee water dishes as her territory. She was there last night and again tonight. I love bees, but if this keeps her off of the hummingbird feeders, she can stay there. She only eats one per day. If she lays eggs, though, I will have to find the egg case and move it off the deck. I don’t need hundreds of them next year!
I’m trying to figure out what kind of mantis this one is. It definitely is not a Chinese Mantis – the wings are too short. Anyone?
