A Visit from the Mantis Insect !!

in #insectpublast year

I was sitting at a local vendor store by the beach on Koh Samui island the other week , after ordering my food i was sitting there quietly waiting on my food and playing with my phone all of sudden this green insect landed on my hand it gave me a bit of a tingling frightening feeling at first to i actually noticed what it was so i wasn't about to scare him off he seem quite comfortable at the moment so i just turned my phone camera straight on to him hopping that he wouldn't suddenly take of , i snapped a few quick shots a little blurry but hang around a few seconds before he decided to leave.



The Mantis is a peculiar looking insect with triangular heads and bulging eyes supported on flexible necks the closest insect to looking like a Alien. The praying Mantis belong to the order of Mantodea family and there are about 2300 species of praying mantis described. They can be in length between 1 and 16 cm that's huge.



Known also as the praying Mantis and it was what this was doing as to be praying but actually that is the position they get into before striking at there prey an amazing insect they say they can be kept as a pet that i would love it can eat all the mosquitoes that get into my room. A praying Mantis catches other insects with there strong front legs. The front legs are lined with spikes and close in a certain way to have a firm grip on the prey how interesting. I going to have to get myself one as a pet...lol 🤣

Woow, amazing close ups. I haven´t been lucky enough to see this wonderful creature yet, even though they are not sometimes seen even in my Czech homeland (where they never occured before).

I have seen a few around on my travels but first time for such a close up definitely was amazing to look him in the eyes 👀

How cool is that to have it land on your hand. Lucky you! These things fascinate me and they are big. They always turn their heads and watch me when I move. You didn't have to go hunting for this one. Great photos. Thanks for using #insectpub and #butterflyday tags @hangin. : )

It was amazing it's something that doesn't happen everyday and yep it did save me time from going hunting got to be lucky some times...lol 🤣

What an amazing moment Angelo! Having him land on our hand like that! WOW! Thank God for Phone cameras, lol. Anyway, we don't have these fascinating creatures here in Canada, because they like the warm climate. But hopefully someday I get to photograph him when I travel 🌴😊🌴

It truly was a fun experience i have had butterflies land on me but this well what can i say i am magnetized to insects...lol..i hope you do see one on your travels 🦋 🙏 🦋

Well well well...looky there, it's a mini sir hangin. Some people say YOU are a mantis!

Yep my little offside mini spy he has a little mini cam camera installed in him..lol 😀

lol...that's darn funny but that would also be awesome!

I should work on that idea little Mantis Drones how awesome 👍

Yes, work on that, get a prototype designed, get a patent, start selling them and get filthy rich!

I actually think it would be a good seller i would be buying one image the videos you can get then place them on youtube you would make a fortune...lol 😊

Yes, that's a brilliant idea sir hangin! Think of the places you could go without being seen!

My exact thoughts...hehe 😊
