Fine art illustration of a European Praying Mantis (Mantis religiosa.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The European Praying Mantis was completed on 3.10.2011. I had been meaning to add this insect to the image library for some time. I believe I had misidentified a Stagmomantis Californica as a Mantis religiosa. Any professional or amateur entomologists, please feel free to correct me ! The drawing is based on a photo by Alice Abela.
