Gossamer wings

10 02 2014

I spotted this dead something near the back door. At first I didn’t know what it was, but when I turned it over, it was clear it was a large stick insect/praying mantis. I picked it up by one of its now-dry wings, and saw the most amazing pink gossamer wing hiding underneath the green of the outer wing. So pretty.
