Last Glimpses of Summer

Several weeks ago my brother captured this mantis in its natural habitat close to the Livadiya bay. Notorious for their prayer-like posture, some people call them praying mantis. These predatory creatures eat smaller insects or even its siblings [!] Their food habits change as they grow bigger. Larger species can attack small scorpions, lizards, frogs, birds, snakes, and even fish.
