Ted was on the right track with his comments about the mantid-like head. It is in fact a mantid of some type. Here’s a close crop from the image above.

Amazing how the forelegs are completely hidden from view – that would’ve given it way.
I’m still wondering about that other insect (apparently a moth).
I hope you enjoy taking a closer look at some of the things I find interesting.
