This is one of my favorite pictures of Brice. He was only 7 years old in this picture, holding 2 mantids. (He's 16 now, and goes back to school this week.) The tan one was his that he raised over the summer. Her name was Tiger, and I think that was the last time a mantid had a name around here.
You can see a little family resemblance to Bug Girl in the sidebar photo. Of course, nowadays, he doesn't play with bugs anymore, but I can still show him some of the bugs I find, and he'll smile and say "That's cool", while Michael just rolls his eyes.
