La Mante fecund

Praying Mantis [Mantis religiosa] la Mante religieuse

Yup!

More mantis pictures...

this time on our big Buddleia bush...

it could be she who came indoors, because I released her on this bush a while before.

 

This female is going to lay loads of eggs....

if her rotund abdomen is anything to go by....

I've not seen one so gross in the abdomen...

they are, always, much bigger than the males...

who have pencil-thin six-packs...

but she's huge.
