Orchid Mantis – very pink adult female

Adult female Hymenopus coronatus (Malaysian Orchid Mantis) fresh after molt. The pink will fade then return during her cycle of producing oothecae. She grooms herself like a cat by wetting bristles on the inner side of her craws then rubbing them over her face and eyes.

Soundtrack by Precarious

Mantis Dance

A short animation I made with blender 2.77 as part of my study. It took me a good amount of time to figure out how the animation might be looking fast enough for the song and somewhat believable.
