Shiny angry bug by Rrkra Shiny angry bug by Rrkra
A praying mantis, again. This time a bigger one.

...I don't think they like each other. A mantis isn't exactly what you call friendly - most things are either food or a perch from its point of view :fuzzydemon: :XD:

Mostly used silver-lined beads - Toho 30b, 27b, 25b. Shiiiiiiny.
Wings and legs are on wire.
Download for the big size.

The tutorial is here:

=D

just read your note - oh yes, they make great pets - I had several as a child in California.  We fed them flies and bananas!  :)

Wow, really, bananas? Now that's interesting. They sure know what's tasty =P
