What are YOU looking at?

There IS some justice!

Just what Maryland gardeners have been waiting for…a brown marmorated stink bug chomping, slurping, eating machine!

This photo of a praying mantis devouring a BMSB was sent to us by Howard County Master Gardener Susan Levi-Goerlich.

What would be a great caption for this photo?

I can’t believe I ate the WHOLE thing!
What- you never saw anyone eating a BMSB before?
Don’t watch me while I eat.
Oops…caught red handed.
Aaaack – I thought you said marmalade bug!
Please pass the salsa.

Let’s see how many captions you can come up with!

    (It is almost Halloween, after all.)

    I have a great praying mantis photo from yesterday, but it's eating a bumblebee. I kept telling it, no, don't eat the bees, but it wouldn't listen.

    Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.


    No thanks to the plum sauce, but do you have any ketchup?
