The first native praying mantis I have ever seen (most of the frequent ones are Chinese)

This is a Carolina Mantis, from Pea Island NWR, earlier this month

I thought there was a dragonfly thread, but I can't find a current one so I will post this one here.

I think it is a Great Blue Skimmer, seen at the Gateway to the Sound visitors center on Roanoke Island earlier this month.

How do you know it was a native mantis... because it was brown instead of green?

Just two unidentified hoppers.

This first one was seen after a heavy rain and "he" looked like he was holding on for dear life. Or maybe he was smelling the flowers.

This one was calling for a mate by our back door. The wings would shake as it made its sound.

Our hopper numbers have dropped with the cooler temps, but Bluebirds and a Kestrel are still around catching some for a meal.

I JUST discovered this project Noah you mentioned above while trying to identify insect photos I had taken while in Costa Rica this summer.
