Wildlife from Maspalomas Dunes, Gran Canaria

SAM 2855

In November I visited the island of Gran Canaria for some winter sun. I have uploaded a small selection of wildlife photographs from my visit onto my Picasa web album. Without a doubt the Thistle Mantis (Blepharopsis mendica) shown above, and its amazing ability to blend into the bushes on which it hunts, was a highlight find.
