    Default Getting ready for the hop

    ID: Mantis nymph

    Spotted this tiny beauty roaming around the leaves of a shrub, the tiny beauty was almost like a speck of dust, only on close observation realized it was a beautiful mantis nymph. Luckily though it wasn’t camera shy and calmly moved around without running off or hiding underneath the leaf. It kept traversing from one leaf to other, not sure if in search of any prey, and at times jumped off from the tip of the leaf. This frame was just a moment before the jump, where it moved almost to the tip of the leaf, balancing itself well and, later, hopped off to the lower leaf.

    EXIF:
    Canon 80D
    Canon 100mm macro
    F/11
    Shutterspeed 1/125
    ISO 500
    Handheld, external flash fired

    Good to see it when it is about to jump. I think the lower shutter speed has resulted in lower sharpness. Overall the frame gives an idea of a very natural event happening in the insect world. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
