Maylasian shield praying mantis - nymph
Lens: 105mm Camera: K200d 
Posted By: yeatzee, 12-25-2009, 12:30 AM







A very difficult species to photograph when young. They never stop moving, which can make taking their picture very difficult since im using macro lens + extension tubes.

It is strange to see these things up so close. First shot is great.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes w/ extension tubes also (1:1 is not nearly enough for these guys)
