I just came back from a wild-life shoot and while pouring my self some tea, I saw a "male-mosquito". I was about to crunch it when I realize that this is no mosquito but a tiny, very lively praying mantis. As quickly as possible I exchanged my 150-500mm with a 105mm Nikor macro and a flash. Unfortunately my D300 was set on variable ISO and the resulting pictures were all at ISO-1600 to make things even worse, although I focused manually the camera was set on spot, resulting in under exposure.
To make a long story short please pardon the technical quality of the shot. I want to share this very weird critter with you.

D300 ISO-1600 f20 flash hand held.
