Mantids in Abundance

The warmer weather today prompted me to begin cleaning flower beds of their winter mess. I came across 8 Chinese Mantid egg cases, like the one pictured here. Seems I will have no shortage of large praying mantids this coming summer. I hope to be able to see the young emerge, I will try to watch them closely this spring. I may even bring one inside to see if it will hatch for me.
