Thanks Clint, I love finding them too (which is really easy this year, they are all over the place!!!). They hardly move, and they seem to enjoy posing.

I love mantis shots and those are great. I would have thought that Florida would have gobs of them but have not seen one, you can buy them from the nursery though.
