Praying Mantis Food Search

When they first came out of the egg sack, G insisted that we drive to a bunch of pet stores to look for aphids or fruit flies, since that is what the instructions said that they eat.  No luck.  A good thing too, as that sent us to the garden to search for aphids and we found the motherload of all aphid populations in the Tulip Poplar tree that is in our yard.  I found happy ladybugs munching away and got some awesome pictures before bringing the leaves in for an aphid feast for the Praying Mantises that we kept:

Munching away on one after another....
