Capturing The Moment — Praying Mantis Egg Case   4 comments

Beyond Tucson Event-9483 blogPraying Mantis Egg Case on a Mesquite Tree Branch — Image by kenne

While taking some children on a nature walk during the Beyond Tucson Event in Sabino Canyon, I reached up to pull down a mesquite tree branch to demonstrate the small leaf size and spotted a praying mantis egg case — a teaching moment. If I had looked for one, it would not have happen.

Later this spring a hundred or more praying mantis’ will emerge from the case.

  1. Beautiful colours combination!


  2. Surprise lessons on a nature walk are always special moments for teaching children.
