Gracias... es todo lo que puedo decirte Gerhard.
La captura que has logrado como final de una secuencia donde mostrabas el desove del mantis es impresionante.
Felicitaciones por permitirnos compartir esto.
Thanks... are everything what I can say you Gerhard.
The capture which you have obtained like end of a sequence where you showed the egg-laying of mantis is impressive.
Congratulations to allow us to share this.

I agree with RAP, shots like this really add feeling to this site. I really enjoyed the shot of the laying mantis, and now I find this I feel excited. Thanks.

Gerhard, I found this set very interesting. These are excellent shots with the subject so very small-reminds me of the Jumping Spider I photographed at 1/8". These are smaller? Excellent note. Thanks for a great post!!

Your not only a bird specialist but also a macro specialist.
Naast de vogelmannen uit Sud Africa, krijgen we nu ook de macro man uit Sud Africa. En we hadde ook al een roofdieren man. fun. Erg goede reportage en elke foto is erg mooi genomen. Mijn complimenten Gerhard. Exelent job.
Gerhard just superb, such detail well worth keeping an eye on them, have you radio tagged a few so we can watch them grow up ;0))))#.
Wel baie geluk met jou babysit, dit het gewerk. En hierdie klein outjies is pragtig. Die beligtig s nie sleg nie.
Baie mooi gedoen.

Very well executed series of these little critters ;-) Interesting to see their first, tentative steps into the world, especially in no. 3 which shows that also mantis youngs sometimes have trouble keeping track of their legs ;-))

This is just great this Treknature site. The time and effort people like yourself put into their posts makes the internet very much an educational tool. Great photography and content Gerhard.

This is outstanding work. What a pleasure it must have been to witness this rare event. They are so small, and yet you have captured all the details extremely well.

Great to see you got them. It is very impressive shots for how small the hatchlings are. Very well taken, and realy put a smile on your face to see them. So when is the 1st to school photos coming?
