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. =)

Wow. I adore that expression he has! He looks ready to plot some real mischief! I like that turquoise stripe across its mandible.
