i..... love this.

I'm a huge Mantis fan; my family orders mantis eggs every year and have started the invasion of one of the coolest bugs ever!

your mantis shots are simply awesome :wow: they are beautiful insects by nature but you somehow manage to bring more of that beauty out.
i just have one question: i saw that most of your insect shots look as if shot outdoor, but the mantis series are different. so where did you get them? were the mantises donated by a zoo or did you collect them yourself? :hmm:

How wonderful insect. I love many of your pictures. You have an unbelievable eye, and an unbelievable way of making those insects "tell" things.
