Find the mantid 2

I spied this rather scrawny brown female S. californica in this clump of dead penstemon stalks.

See her there?




OK, how about now?


She had an admirer nearby.

I collected the female briefly to take her picture, and in the process I also collected some penstemon seeds. If anyone would like them, let me know. I will mail them to you. They are California natives and drought tolerant. I think they are Penstemon spectabilis.
