Praying Mantis

It's a new month now, so am going to post "Flora and Fauna" for this month here on Camera Critters. All pictures will feature critters on a flower.

96/365 - Praying Mantis

This picture was taken early April this year... our neighbor Ria and I have started doing morning jogs, and on some days, I would be taking my camera so I can also take picture of things that would interest me while jogging.

Near the heart of the neighborhood, we spotted this little mantis on a flower. It was really, really cute, that I asked Ria if we could stop for a while because I didn't want to miss the chance of taking pictures of this critter. I had to turn on the flash because it was still dawn, and although some pictures didn't look good (It was hard to look on the camera's LCD on such low lit situations), I was happy I was able to take a picture of this. He really looked like he was praying, and the flower was his altar.
