These Mantis have the same appeal as Meerkats when David Attenborough
brough tthem to the world's stage.
So comical and as always so well photographed.

My word...that REALLY is camouflaged, Carol. He's pretty much THE same colour as that leaf!

VERY good close-ups here, especially 1 and 2.

And so cool how he posed for you Grin
