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.


  1. Ouah!
    une Mante religieuse qui dévore le mâle , la nature est parfois bizarre et cruelle.
    Bonne journée

  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.
