Hello, interesting insect lover hiver friends, this morning I tried to greet all of my friends with some insect shots, accidental encounters often occur between me and insects, on this occasion precisely in my yard.
Oratoria irisor better known as the praying mantis, this type of grasshopper is very easy to find in tropical climates, in Asia specifically this grasshopper is very easy to find both in flower gardens and meadows.
On this very cold morning, he was perched on a branch of a flower plant, his body was a little wet with morning dew, the first time he met him he just didn't move much, after I took a few shots, he began to react and be aggressive, jumping from one plant to another, I tried to follow him.
As you can see in the picture he is very aggressive, not only moving and jumping he even twirling like he is doing a dance, he looks like he is deliberately stylizing when I take the next few shots, like a photo model he is posing, and I follow him with exotic shots.
I didn't expect him to be able to follow every flow of my shots, not long after the beautiful morning sun began to appear with a yellow light that penetrated the trees, a few moments later the praying mantis was gone, he was able to fly far.
When in the realm of searching and hunting Insects are very easy to do in the morning, many advantages for us in the morning, besides the wings are still wet, the weather is still cold and humid makes the insects not aggressive and it is very beneficial for us.
That's all my Insect hunting for today, I hope all of you will be entertained by the insect photography in my post, and thank you to all of you who have stopped by my blog.
