Mantis Egg Sac
Lily noticed this in a cedar tree the last time we went for a walk. I was lucky to have the camera with me because I am always on the lookout for these.

They look like styrofoam and you can find them on trees, weeds, twigs, brush, etc.
We have a few different kinds of mantids out here, but I think this sac is from the praying mantis -
In the spring, they'll hatch out by the hundreds [I hope] and eat plenty of other bugs.
Someday I want to see the hatching....maybe next year?
