What I like about this is the white clouds around the little guy. Nice capture, goo details and colors...~ (I don't think I would hold one of these...)

I don't know what it is but each time i see a picture of the mantis religiosa looking at the lens...i really have the impression there is some kind of communication/connection you don't find at all with any other bug...
I just love this.

Oh my god, superb shot of a very small Mentis ! When I was younger, I remember once seeing one on a maple tree, but since then.. I'm out of luck... And now I'm doing macro, would love to catch one of these days.

Fabulous pose! But I have to shudder a little - in this photo it looks pretty cute, but I don't think I could let one walk on my hand, however irrational that might be.
