THIS CLOSE UP OF THE CHINESE MANTIS I TOOK IN MY STUDIO! I PURCHASED THE ANTHURIUM FLOWER AT MY LOCAL FLORIST! WHEN I PLACED HIM ON THE FLOWER HE KEPT JUMPING AND FLYING OFF! AFTER SOMETIME OF GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH HIM, POSSIBLY TIRING HIM OUT, HE GAVE ME THIS POSE, I CLICKED THE SHUTTER AND THIS WAS THE RESULT! I GOT LUCKY WITH THE EXPRESSION HE GAVE ME! I HAD 2 EXTENSION TUBES ON MY MEDIUM FORMAT CAMERA PUTTING HIM ABOUT ONLY 2" FROM THE LENS, HE WAS ACTUALLY AT TIMES TOUCHING THE LENS WITH HIS TWO FRONT ARMS! LES
