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.
