Thank you so much! I do have a lot of praying mantis here on the property. Mystery solved. I will move it to the proper category.

Hi Judy, this is an egg case from a Mantis. It is called an ootheca. I am not sure of the species that produced it. Do you have any other pictures of it? This should go in the Arthropods section :)
