Yep, I can see him alright. Hope all that bug blood doesn't rush to his head. I remember a long time ago, back when I was a young boy, someone squished one of these things and bright red blood went everywhere, yuck! Nice photograph Nikola. :D

It actually took me a second to see the mantis. great Camouflage and a greater picture Nikola. There must be a lot of them around where you shoot :shock: :smt023

Nice shot as usual Nicola. Looks like a good size too. We have some in Australia that grow to about 10" 8-[

Well, you expected something on the photograph and mantis was in focus, but on ground, in natural environment, it is not easy to perceive them. Actually I saw six of them during my whole last vacation. Three of this kind, two green and one gray. :D
