Ave, Jelly!

Somewhere in I Got 2 Shoes is a photoblog waiting to come out. Just take a look at this sequence of photos of a praying mantis laying eggs. These pics weren't cribbed off the internet: they were snapped by Jelly herself!

I'm proud to say that the first photo was enough to clue me in to what was going on: having owned four tarantulas, I used to be quite well-read when it came to insects and arachnids. I've forgotten most of my childhood knowledge, but the sight of that mantis's ass exploding evoked pleasant memories, reopening mental tomes that have lain dormant and dusty lo these many years.

Thanks, Jelly. Indeed, thou dost rock.
