it's like the Wild Kingdom out here y'all
Our resident praying mantis, which I have posted pictures of previously, attracted herself a mate.
She apparently got tired of his 'mansplaining' everything to her and took matters into her own hands. Or head into mouth as the case may be.
Later, she had herself a fine meal.
I'm expecting some egg laying before long. Her abdomen is getting quite large.
I couldn't get the third picture of her as she is no longer on the shrub where she has resided all summer so either I finally annoyed her enough or she has gone to lay her eggs. In any case, she is gone.
