A couple of weeks ago I caught a tiny praying mantis nymph while working on our new house, and released it into our current front yard after showing it to the kids.

It seems unlikely, but I wonder if it was the same bug …

After a week of struggling to receive anything from the various amateur radio satellites, I’ve realized that my initial success with the ISS was just beginners luck. Time to add a WA5VJB cheap yagi [https://www.wa5vjb.com/references/Cheap%20Antennas-LEOs.pdf ] to the project list.
