Proud Stance by biawak Proud Stance by biawak
An Asian Boxer Mantis (Theopropus elegans?) female.
New info: This may be a Creobroter gemmatus instead!
Check out the full view to see that she actually has compound eyes. The Black eye-spot is only an optical illusion. She looks as if she always has her eyes on the camera.

Proud Stance by ~biawak Not only that he's highly concerned about the techniques of taking photographs, but he is also very knowledgeable about his objects. We can see his love for nature through his gallery which is filled with awesome macro photos. Thanks for sharing that wonderful portrait of an Asian Boxer Mantis female. Good Job!

There's something about praying mantis' that make them seem like very smart and cunning insects. That's probably why they're my favorite insects in the animal kingdom. So, can you tell me, are they or are they not among the most intelligent insects? And if not, what would you say is?
