African flower mantis

Post by dy5 »

A couple of 'studio' photos of a Pseudocreobotra ocellata male. Its a colorful, moderately small (30-50mm) African species that sits in or near flowers waiting for unsuspecting prey to arrive.

Nikon D800; Voigtländer 125mm macro lens; multiple flash lighting; single frame.
