Title:
Orchid Mantis

Specie:
Orchid Mantis // Hymenopus coronatu

Description:
I chose the orchid mantis as the main theme of my personal project not only because I find them tremendously beautiful and interesting but also because I could not find any scientific illustration of this species on the internet or in books despite trying very hard. This fact was very disappointing but also very motivating. I started collecting as much visual material as I could and ended up with an amount of references that could actually put together a decent publication. I am definitely determined to produce more illustrations of this amazing species from the rain forests of Southeast Asia known for its brilliant camouflage, mimicking parts of the orchid flower and I am very happy I managed to finish this one before the deadline :)
