Kung Fu Praying Mantis

As kids we used to re-enact the climactic scene from The Karate Kid over and over again. You know, the one where Ralph Macchio (whatever happened to Ralph Macchio?), barely able to stand, adopts the crane position in order to take out the evil Johnny.

Well, such a move came springing to mind when we clapped eyes on this praying mantis (actually a giant Malaysian shield praying mantis). This super cool colourful insect, snapped by photographer Igor Siwanowicz in his Munich studio, looks ready to go to work on a cadre of evil bugs.

And it could kick your ass, unless you, y'know, stamp on it.
