Spiny flower praying mantis (Pseudocreobotra Wahlbergii)
Lens: 105mm Camera: K200d

This is a nymph spiny flower mantis, which will turn white as it gets older. At its current stage its body is very reflective. The size alone of these little guys make them hard to photograph.

That is one wicked looking critter. I'm just glad he's tiny. Congrats on capturing the little thing. That last picture is especially good. It's a beast out of a horror movie. =)
