Iris Mantis

This was inspired by three things.  First, a friend who bought some property and let me stay at his parents' home told me a story about finding a praying mantis on his land and getting excited about it.  Next, his wife told me her favorite flowers were irises.
Second, this guy: www.makino.or.jp/index_e.html and his art:sciencewindow.jst.go.jp/html/s…
Third, I found a Japanese children's song about praying mantis babies.
Finally, I made this picture and gave it to my friends.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh how beautiful!!  So nice of you to give these away as gifts too, ooohhh!!  The symmetry/wallpaper-like look of this is really charming, and the colors of the mantis just gorgeous!!  I'm really loving that gold touch!
