Baby Pray Mantis
Posted By: old4570, 10-22-2014, 04:52 PM

The baby Mantis are about , they are extremely small and hard to find .
Its been a little like finding a needle in the back yard the last week , I know they are there but they are so .
I was spying for spiders when I spotted this one jumping about the blue berries . Maybe 10mm long , it will be interesting to see if I can document there growth .

I don't think I've ever seen a young one either. Thanks for sharing this. Really nice shots too.

All I saw was green! I never saw one in this color.
Great macro capture.

Thank you for the kind words ..
This is what I have been working towards , being able to enlarge the very small often unseen , to a size everyone can appreciate .

I've seen them but only when I was away from my camera. And the few that I've seen were green.
