Don't see mantids as much as I used to. They are an interesting insect and you've captured this one beautifully.

Ykies! He ( or she) is looking right at me. Don't the females eat their mates. Great shot.

It totally worked! Great photos Stewart! I can clearly remember diving into the big piles of leaves we raked up and the smell of them burning...

I love these guys! They look so alien! When they look at you, they appear to have some sort of intelligence. Maybe I'm the one who appears alien...
