There are two of these hanging out together in my mums. The other one had his/her head hidden in the leaves.

Now that is up close! And you can see the dark spot in the eye that has caused so much discussion lately.

Thanks Ken and Mike. This is a crop (about 50%). I could have used my close-up macro filter, but the DOF is almost nil so I opted for the crop instead.

Very nice mantis shot Sue. Good colour and it has a real sense of texture, you can imagine what the thorax would feel like to touch :).

Interesting angle too.

Mantises (manti?) are always beautiful and interesting to look at. An awesome angle on this one Sue.
