I find it in my garden.It was over 15 cm long.
They eat insect, but when mating a female often eats male's head and his body will continue to mate longer, thus ensuring fertilization.

Excellent picture, I like the pose very much. The light is very good,the DOF is a bit shallow perhaps, but no big problem, it focuses the attention on the front legs.
Very good job!

What a super first post Zdenka, lovely detailed close up, great background too, I think just having the head a front legs in focus works well.
