That mantis looks dangerous Saly, Are they all that colour? our's are mostly green, also noticed the knobs on the butterfiys antenna, You often teach me something with your macro shots, thanks.

How odd that the beast is so smooth and the beauty is so grainy! Nice captures, Saly.

Thank you Grounded, Raghu, Carol, killerwolf, Cole, and Jim!

Mantis makes such a great photo model because they will just sit there and stare back at you! I usually see them in green or tan, this was an unusual peach color (and huge).
