Artist's Description

The praying mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer. The larger group of these insects is more properly called the praying mantids. Mantis refers to the genus mantis, to which only some praying mantids belong. Typically green or brown and well camouflaged on the plants among which they live, mantis lie in ambush or patiently stalk their quarry. They use their front legs to snare their prey with reflexes so quick that they are difficult to see with the naked eye. Their legs are further equipped with spikes for snaring prey and pinning it in place.

I was giddy because i hadn’t seen one of these beauties for years, and I had my Nikon, so I was extra giddy. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get close enough for really great closeups, but I got one really great shot before he jumped off into the bushes. I took this in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 105mmMacro lens.
