Taken a few years ago right outside my front door. I had kept that little mantis for maybe seven months wrapped in his little ootheca egg sac along with about 100 brothers and sisters. This was the first day out into the world.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
