Artist's Description

Subject: Praying Mantis
Location: Lake Telemark, NJ, USA
Equipment: Nikon D3200 w/ Nikon 105mm Macro Lens
View that crazy face LARGE

The Praying Mantis is a formidable predator. They have triangular heads poised on a long “neck,” or elongated thorax and can turn their heads 180 degrees. They scan their surroundings with two large compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them. 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 very rarely see these beauties any more. I had a blast with this one. I just sat there for an hour and watched it and took pictures. This one is my favorite so far.
