Q and Mom and I found this guy alive and kicking when we were working in the yard last week. None of us recognized what he was so, despite his "Aliens" appearance, we gave him the benefit of the doubt as a beneficial and freed him over by the compost pile. He had no wings and used the four visible legs plus two up at the front, which aren't really visible and reminded me of praying mantis arms, to crawl around. Today when I went out to train the grapes a little I found his husk affixed to one of the grape leaves. I'm so curious what he became. Any ideas?

I got the potato patches mulched today so only a few inches of stem are showing again. Lettuce was harvested to take to the handwork weekend and I'm going to get some seed planting done before I go - more radishes, carrots, lettuce, and spinach as well as sunflowers and basil.
