    Feather mantis

    The photo doesn't do it justice. The yellow and purple/brown 'circles' on its legs and around its body are really beautiful. Lousy photo - taken in haste!

    No ootheca; I have only seen this one specimen. Briefly.
  3. Same individual different angle, poor quality photo. Sorry!

  5. Not really. These tend to sit on a particular type of purple/pink flower, so if you walk reasonably slowly along jungle paths with good dappled sunlight it is not too hard to spot them. Having said that, on occasions I have found one and pointed it out to my wife and she could not see it even after I pointed to it. And vice versa when she has found one. So I guess it is a mix of luck, good eyesight and being in the right light. And, of course, the right place. They are quite seasonal, so timing is important.
