My Pet Praying Mantis for the Day

I was in the process of removing my laundry from my clothesline the other day and found a praying mantis chilling on my shirt. She was beautiful so I took a few pictures and figured she would eventually leave, but she stayed there ALL day. When I left to go to dinner, she had moved to the ties on the bikini I had hanging up and she was making a nest. Unfortunately, I had to remove the nest the next day when it had hardened. If the hatching process was a quick one I would have left it there, but I wasn’t prepared to surrender my bikini to the praying mantis babies for a couple of months. I believe the ants got into the nest. Circle of life, right?
