Praying mantis

My youngest loves insects of all kinds; he certainly has a knack for finding them in their natural environment. This is a praying mantis, found in a field outside the city, photographed in his hand and released back unharmed into the wild.

He reports that it tickles when it walks up his arm.

  2. Cool macro photo! I have to admit to enjoy finding insects myself and take the odd photo just like this one.

The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
