Today I gave all the 'kids' a bath today and noticed a few 'hang arounds'. Besides the second mantis, I took a picture of this guy. They seem to be hopping between plants and eating pests. Follow the arrow.
So nice to have blooms returning to my hibiscus, sorry but I find all critters on my blooms disconcerting!! I wasn't getting any blooms for quite a spell there and it is neat to see the butterflies going to my hibiscus! Yeah had a yellow sulphur visit my double orange today...........I guess he was color blind.
Glad you feel comfortable with your helper.
