I’ve unleashed The Mantis Army of Ninja Assassins (M.A.N.A.)! Found a new species of Mantis that I've never seen here before...about 30-50 of these little black guys were crawling all over a plant yesterday. At first glance they looked like large black ants and I started to make a move to whisk them off! I looked high & low for the egg case, which has to be right on the pot/plant for there to be this many in one spot, but couldn’t find it anywhere.
2/3 of them were still there this morning so I picked up a couple hitchhikers and gave 'em a ride to the next “filling station”!
Speaking of Thailand and Asia, Lena and Ron are due back pretty soon but she has been sending me some nice pics of their meals of late.

Duck confit and seared ahi, now you are talking!
