Praying Mantis


It falls to me to pull my finger out blog wise and play the next shot in the 'twisted creature tennis match' I have tentatively running with m'colleagues Phil and Kev. The subject chosen by Phil was the Praying Mantis.... so here she is. Look forward to your mantis' (or is it mantises, manti, mantids, mantidae...?)... whatever they are called, over to you good chaps :) The next creature is... the toucan.

That's great - nice simple concept followed through to a perfect conclusion - the habit is really well handled and I like the stained glass window too.

Toucan play at that game... Threecan actually.

Love it! Most mantis art (like there's a whole lot, LOL) are preoccupied with the whole head biting idea. :)

A most untrustworthy-looking creature.

I can't imagine a mantis praying, I think that should be so funny because most of them have a curious appearance. lol
