EUROPEAN MANTIS photography

in Fascinating Insects3 months ago (edited)

Hey Everyone!!
Here are my some pictures of European Mantis that entered in my kitchen today. European Mantis is such a fascinating insect with its big eyes and rotating head😅. It looks very carefully to you when you try to capture it😁, this is what i realized during this insect photography.

The European mantis (Mantis religiosa) is a large hemimetabolic insect in the family of the Mantidae ('mantids'), which is the largest family of the order Mantodea (mantises). Their common name praying mantis is derived from the distinctive posture of the first pair of legs that can be observed in animals in repose. It resembles a praying attitude. Both males and females have elongated bodies with two pairs of wings. The most striking features that all Mantodea share are a very mobile, triangular head with large compound eyes and their first pair of legs (the 'raptorial legs'), which is highly modified for the efficient capture and restraint of fast-moving or flying prey.
