(Strange species of praying mantis)



After a couple of experiments with reversed 50mm extreme handheld macros, I returned to the beloved Nikon 6T +5T combo/on board FZ20 flash.
This was the first day I could really enjoyspring's naturerejuvenation so I did not experiment much with flash bouncing as I would have liked to (the mantis did not end up fleeing away). Could not takea decent/detailed/sharpportrait of the mantis face at 12x zoom. I hope you like these ones.

Strange looking mantis. Looks like an alien indeed. Nice capture.
