Praying Mantis

Today my mom came upon a awesome discovery, a ton of tiny little baby praying mantis.  They are the cutest little things I have ever seen.  They looked just like adult praying mantis but they were about the size of an ant, and they were all over the place.  Of course I right away ran to get my camera.

A whole bunch of praying mantis nymphs

Some of the pictures that I zoomed in more with the camera make it hard to tell just how small these little guys are, but this picture may give you some idea of just how tiny they are.

The praying mantis ootheca (egg case), with little praying mantis nymphs emerging from it.
