After cleaning the gutters, I was going to install some screening over them in hopes of making this autumn a little less gutter-clogging when I realized I needed some clips. After discovering that Home Depot didn't have the clips (even though they sold the screens), I came home to find this praying mantid (Tenodera aridifolia sinensis) on the porch handrail. I can't say for sure, but I'd guess it's one of the ones from the egg sacs I set out back in May.
