|Juvenile Praying Mantis on Basil Leaf.|
The adult one I had photographed several weeks ago and then yesterday whilst weeding and studying to see if my basil plants were bolting I noticed this tiny little one. Less than a cm in length but has the characteristic front legs.
More fun to be had exploring the garden looking for bugs.
