Very strange ... I clicked on Gareth's mantis photo and I see two photos--Blake Heminger's flower *AND* Gareth's mantis. Plus comments for both photos.

Anyway, I hope this goes to Gareth--fabulous capture of this striking insect! :)

What a day, wake up this morning and the poor mantis had fell of its stick mid moulting and by the time I found her she was gasping for her last breath.
Only managed a few hours as adult. RIP..
