I like the contrast and pov, well done.
Well done, clear as crystal and great pov.
Great POV and I love the colors, well done.
Unbelievable, I have not seen anything like it here. We have Leaf Insects which are similar but I am unaware of any Mantids of that Genus here.
Thank you for sharing.
Excellent shot mate ! The only snakes we get are Browns, Tigers and Redbelly blacks and I am not getting that close........
Nice shot, and weejt is half right with his explanation. They actually excrete honeydew, This attracts Ants which feed on the honeydew which in turn protect the Aphids.
The honey dew then is slowly covered with mould spores which grow to form the unsightly "Sooty Mould" you see all over trees and shrubs. The answer is to spray for Aphids which then gets rid of the honeydew, the Ants and the mould.
Very nice shot, Ilove the colors !
Well done Harm, nice specimen.
Very nice !
Unfortunate that beauty such as this is in danger !
Nice shot. Great pov !
Any chance of a couple of shots of some Weta's ?
