    Default An unexpected guest

    ID: Asian ant mantis nymph?

    While plucking off the jasmine from the window’s flowerpot, was surprised to spot a tiny little ant mimicking mantis on the flower. What’s shocking was the fact that there wasn’t a single mantis egg case on the plant, nor is the plant accessible from any neighboring plant [as it’s a single plant in the window(on 14th floor) with no other plants or trees in any of the other floors]
    The tiny(8-10mm long), black beauty kept on moving around the flower and later the plant, shying away from the intruding camera gear. Its good to have the company of such a beautiful specimen right in the comfort of home, hoping to keep on capturing the later stages of this beauty, in the spare time.

    EXIF:
    Canon 80D
    Canon 100mm macro
    F/10
    Shutterspeed 1/200
    ISO 200
    Handheld, external flash fired
