Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today. These are chins baby matins that recently had this morning and I got several different shots of them playing with each other after they were born out of the egg sack. I have been waiting many years for the successfully hatching and it finally happened today! I got some portrait shots of them as well when they emerged from the egg sack as well. I am looking forward to documenting and photographing the Chinese Mantis in the different life cycles this year and hopefully I get some more hatching pictures this week.

I have been adventuring out taking many different sights of spring at my neighborhood pond and neighborhood a lot because I can't work for a long time finally. I got a a molting of a spider finally at sunset conditions a few days back which was very cool to see and I had never photographed a spider in the molting stages before, so this was new for me as a nature photographer . This was a special mom
