Hi Seref,
wow, it's so interesting and looking like a little alien. Colours are beautiful.
You are very brave, I could not have this insect in my hand, brrrr. But it's wonderful, I hope you didn't adopt this little freak ;-)
I only have seen a mantis once in my live.
I don't know if there are some to find in Germany?!? I'd like to see one, your shots are so wonderful, thanks and bye

Merhaba mi gran amigo Seref. Looks like a baby mantis. Wowww... the mantis to seem to be very happy in your hand..good contrast, me to sometimes use my hand to contrast with the dragonflies and other insects, although you finish them times a plant louse to leave in my a substance that to burn my skin and to leave a slight scar....Felicitaciones, details in the face very well captured. Sin duda, una de mis favoritas, me encantan. Saludos Cordiales. Peri: *Ninfa Urania*
