A False Garden Mantis trying to be stealthy
animal australia green insect macro mantis melbourne predator victoria
Brilliant closeups of a magnificent insect. Have you taken these indoors or have you whisked away the backgrounds? They are all excellent pics!
The latest mantis shots were done in our store in Melbourne (we sell studio lighting equipment) using a black background. You can do this outside with very small apertures and/or side lighting. My fuchsia shots were done outside during the day with a flash. The background is just as black.
Awesome shot. Very sharp and incredible detail. I’m off to the garden now to try and find some insect action!
Truly, they are aliens, gradually taking over the world. Doesn’t it look that sneaky to you?
he’s a cutie…great shot
A wonderful macro of a marvelous insect.
