Mantis suffering fungal attack?
Oct 8, 2012

I took a series of shots of this common mantis and noticed what looks like injury or fungal attack on the right eye (it was apparent on the wing covers as well).Has anyone seen this before? I just thought it was interesting.

It also kind of reminds me of Sheldon on Big Bang Theory.....

Enjoy playing with photography...landscape, astronomical, wildlife (especially insects and spiders).
