It is spring in Australia and that means that the garden has been invaded by multitudes of tiny, newly hatched critters.
The weather was splendid over the weekend and that meant spending the day out in the garden. It also meant I probably spent as much time taking many breaks with my camera chasing the tiny beasts as I did actually doing something to help…
We have a load of new plants to put in the garden bed we had to clear out after a tree fell on it a few months ago, and while we were out there I found a few of these tiny mantis walking on one of the new plants.
They were very cute and so tiny (about 1 cm long) they were walking from leaf to leaf on the spider webs. They were quite hard to get a decent picture of, each time they saw me looking at them they would retreat to the other side of the leaf they were on and I would have to start all over again!
