|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
This photo was taken this morning, at Cibubur Bogor ,about 40 km from Jakarta. It was a cloudy day. I used my macro lens on handheld.
The Praying Mantis is a large insect from the order of Mantodea. It's called the "Praying" Mantis because it often stands in a pose that looks like it is praying.
The Praying Mantis can camouflage itself by changing color. Its color may vary from dark brown to green, allowing it to blend into tree bark or green plant leaves so it can hide from predators as well as sneak up on prey.(Ducksters)
I Hope you like it.

A very nice close-up of this mantis, excellent detail and perfectly sharp with amazing colors and good camouflage.
Congratulations, boedy! A wonderful composition in shades of green for this Mantis. Really impressed by the smart look of this fabulous predator.
I loved this job so much you have inspired me to make a humble workshop I hope interests you, man.
