Are they doing what i think they're doing? :) Unfortunately after i snapped a couple pictures this trio retreated farther into the bush and i was called away. There were 2 other males hanging around the action... the devils...:)

Notice that the female is green but the males are brown with a green stripe. Does anybody know why this is?

PP is a slight crop and resize if i can remember correctly. I'm hoping the brightness and everything is ok, since my laptop doesn't seem to be very true colored.

I'm not sure why the males are that colour. Good capture Laurita, you did well to see and capture this. Well done.

Good capture. not seen multipull males with a mantis, I also understand that the successfull candidate will end up as desert probably even while he is engauged in the mating act.

Bonne photo qui nous montre une situation animale étonnante et intéressante.
Well done !

Excellent definition in odd conditions, I guess. Cheers!

This is such a nice shot. You are building up quite a collection of mantids. Great moment captured. Well seen and taken.
