Remarkable image! Makes me wonder if he’s looking for small insects, or a bit of water. Wow!
Thanks!Indeed it looks like he’s investigating the inside of the flower.
More mantis mania. Another excellent shot!
Absolutely fantstic macro. He is an acrobat delicately balanced waiting for dinner.
Such a beautiful image, wonderful.
