I wonder how many tiny insects there are in the garden that we just don’t see. There is so much that we are not aware of.
This tiny tiny preying mantis was spotted by a keen eyed neighbour. Mantis’ are very elegant and amazing insects which come in all sizes and colours. They are known as “ambush predators” for obvious reasons and even large Mantis’ can be difficult to spy in the garden. Mantis’ have a long association with cultural activities around the globe.
