Rarely do you see the wings of a praying mantis. I pulled this one from a spider web yesterday morning and he sat with both wings open, very aggravated and ready to take on the world. By the time I went and found my camera he had closed one wing but lucky for me the other was still open.

Eventually he recovered enough to fly away.

Phew - I like a good ending and not sure that I've ever seen their wings so an added bonus. Thanks Jackie. x

Great shots Jackie! I've never seen them open either, and don't think I've even seen one fly as well! That wing is beautiful isn't it! Glad you were able to save it.
