Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

This Praying Mantis was camouflaged in my Passion Vine with it's "plantlike greenery". All leaves, sticks, and thorns, it was awaiting the arrival of an unawares caterpillar, butterfly or small spider: the usual characters that live in this lush garden.
