Praying Mantis

This Praying Mantis likes to hang out on my finger lime tree. It's all knees and elbows anyway but with the sharp spines on the tree, it really looks like it is tip-toeing when it moves!

Wonderful shot of these insects, and they really look so much like the leaves.

Nice pic!

I don't like them very much but they are interesting to watch. Thay are smart and lethal.

Great capture. We do not have them here in Yorkshire, but I loved seeing the odd one in rural France a few summers ago.
