A pretty little pink and white mantis around half an inch in size.
Mantenga nature Reserve in the middle veld region of Swaziland
thanks everyone for favouriting this little mantis, and for all the lovely comments.
Dan, Tina and I discussed which photo to use as the top one and it was a toss up between the first and second, but we decided it was easier to see what it was in the first photo. Hard to get a photo of its eyes, it kept turning its head away!
Thank you ForestDragon for making that mission. I entered my little mantis!
I just love these mantids! They are so beautiful! There is a global mantid mission now! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
