    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

    Your close observation helped to notice this interesting behavior. There is a chance, that it might have come through any of the food items bought. It stands out against the white bakground. Good details. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! That is very interesting to note that you found it in 14th floor balcony. Nice contrasting white and blue colour. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
