    Ghost mantis, looks like unicorns when small

    So cute!




    Then they look like dragons when older






    Somebody always asks, so, I used a Canon 40D w/ mp-e65 lens on the babies and the 100mm macro with extension tubes for the older one.

    Great photos love the portrait! What camera did you use? LOL

    The tiny unicorn-ant nymphs are awesome! I've never seen them in that stage in person yet. Do they run around a lot like ants at this size?

    My green female is getting mighty fat so hopefully she'll molt into an adult by Monday and then in a couple weeks... "If this vivarium is a rockin' Don't come a knockin'!"

    Did your mail finally come?
