Baby Praying Manta

As I sat outside yesterday afternoon composing the post for 2 Things Challenge, I noticed hundreds of little baby praying manta crawling from under the deck, up the walls, up my legs, all over the computer.  They were all really small, about 1/4", but they were really, really FAST.
I'm sure most of them will wind up as spider food (this guy was waiting up the wall but I never saw him catch one), but the survivors will help patrol the property later this summer, helping to control other bugs.
