      Incredible photo of a Praying Mantis riding a bike. My favorite insect!!!

    • Laura Stratton

      Photographer, Eco Suparman, is responsible for this stunning shot of a praying mantis appearing to ride a miniature bicycle off into the sunset. Of the photo, the Borneo-based Suparman says: ‘I was practising my macro photography, and there are a lot of small insects there. I was focusing on taking pictures of the mantis when I noticed the curled plants nearby. Straightaway, I thought it looked like a bike. But I couldn’t believe my luck when the mantis walked over and climbed onto the plant’.
