More mystery plant and a fierce new life

I've been watching the praying mantis eggs for months. And finally, a little one. I know that there are many more, but I've only seen this one. All of a few hours old and about half an inch long, and ready to kill its own food.

I finished a painting tonight, after a small series of painting mishaps.


  1. I usually don't like paintings or fotos of garden subjects (flowers/plants). Face to face is the way I appreciate that subject.
    However, your work here is an exception to my general rule.
    Wunderful captures!

  2. Thank you. That's very nice.
