Today was a big day for bugs on my window. It’s been warm and sunny for several days in a row, and I guess today is the day the bugs all came out to play (or today is the day I noticed them).
I’m going to call this something in the praying mantis group, the order Mantodea. It was the second one I saw on the window today – the first, at lunchtime, flew off before I could get my camera. That first appearance was on the other side of a screen anyway and would have been hard to get a picture of. Each was half an inch long.
I also saw a couple of tiny flies…and who knows what else has landed and flown away again while I’ve been sitting here writing this?
