COREY, A FANTASTIC CLOSE UP, "MACRO", ONE OF ( "GOD'S LITTLE CREATURE'S") THE PRAYING MANTIS, ALSO KNOWN AS THE CHINESE MANTIS. THE DETAIL YOU CAPTURED IN THIS PHOTO IS PHENOMENAL TO SAY THE LEAST! I HAVE BEEN ALWAYS INTRIGUED WITH THIS INSECT EVER SINCE I WAS 11 YEAR'S OLD AND TOLD IF I WAS CAUGHT KILLING IT THERE WAS A FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR FINE. ABOUT 4 YEAR'S AGO I GAVE MYSELF A PROJECT TO PHOTOGRAPH THIS LITTLE GUY AND ALSO WENT A STEP FURTHER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE MANTIS! I DISCOVERED A SITE ON THE INTERNET (MANTISPLACE.COM) WHICH HAS A WHOLE SPECIES OF MANTISES THAT I NEVER KNEW ABOUT. I DECIDED TO PURCHASE A COUPLE AS BABIES AND RAISE THEM TO ADULT SIZE TO PHOTOGRAPH. IT WAS QUITE CHALLENGING. I THINK THIS IS A SITE YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN, JUST TO SEE ALLTHE UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT TYPES OF MANTISES THAT ARE AROUND! LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE SITE, LES (I ALSO ADDED TO MY FAVORITE LIST AND VOTED)
