This little fella, despite having only one antennae and part of a leg missing, was scrambling around the french lavender in the garden, and willing to pose for a few pics.
I guess that it is a dangerous world even for the mantis
V3 of this war-wounded hero for me today.
Oh yes, a wish to take a mantis shot one time too, well done Carol! I have never seen a mantis in freedom...Very interesting for a photographer!
have a nice day,
Poor guy, with his missing parts. Seems to still get around ok though. Great shots Carol.........Sandy
Fantastic set,what amazing creatures.
beautiful macro /carol.. very well done!!!
Great macros once again of this little critter. Really love the look of Preying Mantis, though never actually see one in real life. Glad he's still enjoying life regardless of whatever has happened to the missing parts!!
You created sympathy for this handicapped Praying Mantis - Raja.
Fantastic captures! such fasinating creatures.
I love v2 today Carol. Do you know what, I think they all queue up to have their photo taken by you!!!!!
Morning Carol ~ Another terrific capture and with a bit of Oomph
more of your little space men Carol, this one looks a tad oof to me but could be my eyes or the fact he was zipping around, still a great set
These images certainly show how well camouflaged this mantis would be when surrounded by dried grass or leaves. An amazing creature well photographed Carol.
Poor chap -he looks like a piece of origami gone wrong ! Great images of him though and another one thats put a smile on m face ! Gill
