I found this little guy while rinsing blackberries (what else?), but I think he came in with some basil from my backyard. Aren’t his leaf-like wings amazing?

Question is, is he a good bug or a bad bug? I released him outside. I hope he eats other bugs and not my plants!

    We found a baby praying mantis on our porch last week. We feel very lucky to have those around our house. I have read that they eat stink bugs.
