[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi. This lost home of only 3cm large made me daydream about the life it has produced. It's glued on the side of a wall next to the road. I don't know what kind of insect family was born here. Thanks for helping me.

Hello Car Oze!
This is a cocoon of mantis - most probably Mantis religiosa (Mantodea) :)
Interesting presentation :)

Oui. Une ponte de mante religieuse. (mais pas un cocon). Les oeufs qu'ils contient ne sont pas encore eclos.
