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

DD10(10) Some DD are not for that work on purpose but for all the artist work. Thank you to bring this one up.
