The same mantis as in the previous photos was fed up with the molestations of the photographer and his assistant and, as a response, fully opened up and extended herself in what appeared to be a threat position. She maintained this pose for several minutes which was a godsend as I was then able to capture this perfectly focused picture. It was rare indeed that this mantis, which almost always stayed in a closed up position as if ordained by biological law, should open herself up and stay motionless for several minutes.
