The concept and title were thought up long before this photo was ever realized. What made me smile, were trying to find a suitable location and 'model", then trying to coerce a confused and energetic mantis into sitting still long enough to get the shot. The most satisfying aspect, was that the final result was almost identical to my mind's-eye vision.
