The Praying Mantis

Their behavior is not always very Catholic.

The praying mantis has always fascinated man, not only by the cannibalism of the female, but also
by its very predatory feature that has always made it a symbol of strength and cold blood. A praying mantis, thanks to its grinder-type mandibles, can easily eat prey as big as it is.

So imagine what we can feel when we come face to face with mantes over 3 meters high! Especially when it is a real swarm that moves as a single man from one target to another.
Yet these mantes are not so aggressive, we can even think that they seek to get in touch with us. Agile and graceful, It could even be that when one of them will approach you, only to seduce you.

Be careful not to succumb to the charm, we know how lovestories among the Mantis end ...

The artists come from France
