Post by Happy Grumpz » Tue Aug 20, 2019 12:32 pm

Happy new pet day :lol:

Of all things, it's a Praying Mantis :shock: :shock: :shock: I'm absolutely petrified of the little bastard :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm just waiting for it to settle in before using him/her/it as a photography model.

Here's a little video of him/her/it trying to hunt today...

Looks like you caught the bug of insect photography. ;)

But I thought the Praying Mantis only came in green !
Or did you forget to water it ? :lol:

They come in all different colours and shapes mate, they're pretty interesting when you start doing a bit of research on them.

Geez Grumps - the lenses you must have. The detail on all your pics are awe inspiring - I marvel at them and spend a fair amount of time looking at the detail.
Thanks also for the Latin, I've needed to brush up, people just don't use that language enough - it's almost like it's dead or something. :lol:
