I love cone head mantis.
Did you found it there? On the very top of a pine tree, or did you move it there for the shot?
The mantis is slightly outside of the DOF. Focus was done on the tree.
Good shot anyway.
A note is always welcome. You can find some information on cone head mantis in my previous posting.
I just discovered this mantis picture in your gallery. I just wonder about ID because this species looks for me as Empusa pennata (about 1 week ago I saw the some larva species in European part of Turkey).
Anyway, nice picture :)
