Praying Mantis.

This insect gets it’s name from the way in which it’s two front legs are bent and held together, suggesting the position of a prayer.

    I really like this pic, the mantis almost looks a little shy

  • Thankyou! If he hadn’t have peeked out from behind this flower I probably wouldn’t have spotted him. He camoflaged extremely well with the rest of the bush!
