Thanks for the info Robbie - that's a lot of babies to hatch!!
This is certainly a gorgeous photo Rob. I was reading that this is an adult female Indian Flower Mantis and is in a threat pose. They can lay up to 300 eggs in some type of foam cocoon. WATCH OUT CHOOKS!!! Thanks, fun puzzle.
Thanks Meadowhawk - I totally agree.
