15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Meet and greet with a mantis in Costa Maya
The picture is showing a mantis which landed on a iron pump in a shop in the cruise-port of Costa Maya, Mexico. I have followed the insect after it suddenly landed on my arm to the shop nearby. I did not realize at first glance what insect it was, since I have never seen a mantis before. I took the snapshot because you can hardly recognize this astonishing insect because of the color of the pump.
