I love praying mantis. I always keep an eye open for them in the summer although they have been scarce lately, only saw one last year! This is a cool capture in a nicely defined pose... excellent!

This is very arresting. So alien and other worldly, but no, just our own little praying mantis, right? like the stark black and white and the pose he selected is almost like praying.

@Joyce: It's an amazing handcraft, isn't it ?
