Alert mantis by dllavaneras Alert mantis by dllavaneras
This mantis was attracted to the light trap we set up a few weeks ago, but it stayed in some nearby bushes. It stayed still enough to let me snap a few nice shots. =)

I used the Canon 100mm USM macro. The rest of the EXIF info is to the right. :)

this clearly illustrates why these are my fav insects...they always look so intelligent and have this expression of suspicion on their face. XD
