Praying Mantis are one of the strangest creatures on earth. The little black dots for eyes, the creepy form of their bodies, and their unusual behaviour. I tried to capture all of that in this shot. I chose not to relocate the mantis to a more natural location, as our electrical meter box provided a more alienated look.
