    Default Cleaning time…

    ID: Mantis(creobroter/flower mantis)

    One of the most beautiful and photogenic specimens I came across while traversing the trail, this particular beauty had perched itself on the crepe ginger plant, and though initially curious about the intruding elements, in form of the macro set up, later though it turned back to its self-maintenance and surveying the surroundings. The strength of its eyesight could be experienced when it caught sight of an ant that was exploring another flower on the corresponding stem and though it didn’t seem to stalk it, but it kept on keeping an eye on it and getting back to keeping its limbs free

    This has come out very well. Perhaps due to the larger size of the subject, the details are better. How much of a crop is this? A wider version to see the complete limbs would be nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Nice acrobatic pose captured. Good details on the eye and the body area. The antennae are also visible clearly. Agree just a bit more space on the left and bottom would strengthen the composition further. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing the details of its behaviour.
