Mantis Juvenile attacking a human! by 

This shot was taken just before the enraged beast, realising it was impossible to pass the impenetrable forest of fine hairs on my arm, leap back to the foliage, no doubt in search of some other hapless victim to satisfy it’s killing lust!!!!!

No Mantises were injured in the filming of this sequence
