Competition 2023 – Photography – Under 18 years – Kushaan A Ksheerasagar – (2) Stick mantis

By Kushaan A Ksheerasagar, age 15

A stick mantis is on leaf. The shades of the matis and the leaf are almost the same and without the movement of the insect it would be impossible to locate it. The body of the mantis was aligned with the veins of the leaf which made it harder to identify.
