This was new

An enormous praying mantis (enormous in my personal experience with my yard) was hanging out on the deck when I got home today. He was not very happy to see me. And he was huge—almost 3 inches. The other ones I’ve seen were maybe an inch, but, to be fair, that was in the spring so they were babies. I have no idea where he came from (or where he went). Whatever, it’s better than grackles.
