bug riding bicycle
This is the incredible snapshot that appears to show an insect riding off into the sunset - on a BICYCLE. Macro photographer Eco Suparman was gobsmacked when the praying mantis he was photographing jumped up onto a curled plant - and looked just like he was pedalling away. Eco, from Borneo, Indonesia, had noticed the unusually-shaped plant, but was more interested in photographing the bug nearby up-close - when by an incredible stroke of luck, the insect decided to go for a ride. Student Eco, 23, said: "I took this photo on a Muslim cemetery in the Ambawang River village, Borneo Island, Indonesia. "I was practising my macro photography, and there are a lot of small insects there - so it's one of my favourite places to go and get some good shots. "I was focusing on taking pictures of the mantis when I noticed the curled plants nearby. "Straightaway I thought it looked like a bike - but I couldn't believe my luck when the mantis walked over and climbed onto the plant. "I was so excited to take the shot, but I was worried the mantis would walk away, or that the leaves would move. "As soon as I got home, I showed this image to the family and friends and they were all shocked at how much the picture looks like the insect is riding a bike. "I am really glad I was able to photograph this amazing piece of nature's art."
