In my new effort to whip the yard into shape, I was putting some new perennials into the ground and saw a baby praying mantis.
I think this was only time I've ever seen one in the wild, having only seen them in artificial surroundings. I picked it up, and let it walk on my hands. It was about an inch long and a very bright green, and almost translucent.
I have to say, those artists at Pixar were pretty spot on in A Bugs Life.
