I have recently started keeping some mantids, with a view to using them as photographic subjects, as well as unusual pets of course. I obtained three assorted pairs a few days ago and so far have done just the one shoot with one mantis, a male sub-adult ghost mantis.
As an initial shoot to test some techniques, I am very happy with the results so far. I look forward to doing more shoots with these fascinating creatures.
Please let me know what you think, by leaving a message or quick comment (or even a vote, if you feel they are worth it). All comments are welcome, including constructive criticism, I am always happy to listen to good advice.
