Time for More Mantids

I think it high time that we enjoyed another sampling of Igor Siwanowicz's amazing mantid photos. The world would be a different place if these aliens came in larger sizes.

wow! i especially love the 5th photo. It looks like it's doing some kind of an avant garde mating dance. So cool!

Either an avant garde dance or a curtseye straightaway after doing one!

wow, crunching right through the woodlouse's shell. Badass.

I think that's a roach, which makes it even badder. More bad. Whatever.

Yay! How beautiful! I love your pictures and mantids, Igor! The one next from the last is my favorite. It looks so shy.

If it's eating a roach, it's eating its closest cousin.

LOVE the ta-dah poses.

oh, good call wombat. I'm not very familiar with roaches, but a woodlouse would have more legs.

I will never, EVER get bored of seeing Igor's work.

I bow to the master.
