You stand waiting for a bus which never comes, then all of a sudden two turn up at the same time . This is what happened to me. A grave shortage of mantis this year, I didn't think I was going to spot any, when I saw the little brown one running along the drive, closely followed by my cat! I quickly retrieved him and placed him on a nearby plant, turned around, lo and behold there was a green mantis watching the antics from another plant! A quick photo shoot, and the pair were released into the bougainvillea hedge, safely out of harm's way.
