Babies on the bins

So I was minding my own business walking past the trio of waste bins in the driveway when I noticed the lids were crawling with tiny stagmomantis californica. My guess is there is/was an ootheca attached to a branch of the melaleuca tree directly over the recycle bin and some of the hatchlings dropped onto the bin lid below. This then is very likely their mother, captured strolling up the tree last autumn.
