    eeehhh... awsome pics BUT I'm 99.99% sure that's not a carolina mantis... must be an european mantis.

    Unlikely, as they arnt any widespread introduced colonies. Alpha how have you come to this conclusion? TAking into account regional color varietys and subspecies, the coulor range of this species is quite broad
    that makes no logic

    This is a Carolina Mantid. European ones(yes, they are quite widespread, and they occur hear) are different. For one, this gal is not very large, maybe 2 inches or so, European mantids get almost 2x the length. The wings of this mantid also only go about 3/4ths of the way down her abdomen, so the rear part is bare(guess you can't tell in these pics). She also lacks those interesting "Eye spot" Markings that M. religiosa carries on her front legs. I found what appeared to be a pesticide sprayed European a week or so ago, frazzled up antennae and didn't look to hot.

    I agree about the orchestra part...hehe
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    That's a wonderful set of photos! I used to raise African mantids (S. lineola if I remember right) as a hobby/pet.

    There aren't enough books with good photos like yours! You really ought to submit this photo set to http://www.Corbis.com so your images can be used in future Mantis books/print media and you'll get paid!
