Day 10: Beneficial Insects? Yes, please.

So I found this little guy on my potato plant.  Yes, my potato plant has run its course and I should be harvesting some potatoes soon.

It’s a preying mantis!!  I looked up some YouTube videos of these little buggers and man they can be vicious.  There is a video of a larger preying mantis eating a baby lizard alive!!  It is not for the squeamish.  Too bad this bad boy didn’t find his way to my infested kale plant.
