Iwas lucky to be home when a mantis egg mass hatched. All were about a 1/4 inch tall. Shot with D70 and Tamron 90mm macro (old model) some with flash some without. They don't hang around long. A few days later I can find none. Woody

Mass hatch.



Mantis march.



King of the hill (so to speak)



Just curious.

Comments always welcome. Woody

Great shots Woody, I really like #2. Looks like the March of Mantis', off to some great war. That "old" Tamron 90 seems to still work well, ATB, Steve

Really interesting serial photos. I've always found the mantis to be a good subject for insect photos. Would like to see some further shots of the mantis, for example, while approaching its prey. Well done woody!
