Orchid Mantis

Finally got orchid mantises again, I have a pair now and both are very young.  With any luck I can get the male to mature slowly enough raise another generation.  I really like working with this species of mantis.  They naturally pose well and will after awhile allow you to pose them with a stick.  Above is the new male and bellow are some I have worked with before.  I had a female 3 or so years back and a friend let me shoot his female for an hour or so last year.
