Garden wildlife

It’s always worth poking around the garden flowers in Zimbabwe to see what’s around. I was cutting flowers for my host at yesterday’s lunch when I saw this mantis nymph. It ambushes bees as the come to the flowers. It will be around for a while yet so I’ll see what other photos I can get over the next few days.

Nah, there are thousands in my chimney so a few less is a good thing!
