Tour de Fronds for praying mantis with the bike-riding bug
Head down and antennae flowing, this mantis looks like it’s taken green transport to the extreme as he goes for a ride on his bike.
Macro photographer Eco Suparman took the shot as he was trying to capture the bug up close at one of his favourite spots in Borneo, Indonesia.
The 23-year-old student said: ‘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 on to the plant.
He added: ‘I was so excited to take the shot, but I was worried the mantis would walk away, or that the leaves would move.
‘As soon as I got home, I showed this image to the family and friends and they were all shocked at how much the picture looks like the insect is riding a bike.
‘I am really glad I was able to photograph this amazing piece of nature’s art.’
