Caption: Head of a Theopompa mantis (Theopompa burmeisteri). Mantises have large compound eyes, with antennae mounted between them and mouthparts below. The Theopompa mantises are known as the Asian bark mantises. Mantises mainly prey on other insects, lying in wait in their 'praying' posture and striking with their front limbs. Photographed in Danum Valley, Sabah, Borneo, East Malaysia.
