Pseudomantis albofimbriata Of note for this species is the dark spot on the inside of the raptorial forelegs. I believe this is a male as the wings appear to run the whole length of the abdomen. <br />

  1. Nice capture! I can always tell from the thumbnail when a photo is yours Ruth! Your shots are always artistic, emotive, and so lovely <3. You have a wonderful signature style for sure. Posted 9 months ago, modified 9 months ago
    1. Not to mention the insane technical quality. I always open every image full screen on my 34" monitor (just to enjoy it more) and even at maximum size this one just nails it. Perfect focus, depth of field, and attractive soft background. It's a level of precision rarely seen. Posted 9 months ago
      1. Yes, exactly! Precision meets art. Plus, there's a dream-like quality to her photos that I love. Posted 9 months ago, modified 9 months ago
