Must be the warm weather encouraging them out. Found a very small (5cm), straw coloured stick insect this afternoon while gardening - thought it was a bit of dry straw until it moved!

I'm not so sure. Just watched another vid on YT where a mantis takes out a hummingbird. Unbelievable!

This one was only tiny but Phil was going to trap them in a jar... think in this case the huntsman would have won!

 

Here is a close up pic that I got of it.
