Does this praying mantis look like he is riding a bike, or what? Image: Eco Suparman in Borneo

Check out this photo: a praying mantis riding his bicycle into the sunset? Thanks to +Steve Wozniak for turning us on to this shot by Eco Suparman in Borneo.

Eco told reporters he snapped the insect as it hopped onto the tendrils of a plant nearby.

Allegedly, two officers from entymology gave the mantis a $50 fine for not wearing a helmet, ignoring the defense that an exoskeleton protects just fine. pleas of being protected by an exoskeleton.

It’s bugs on bikes in Borneo. Cool!
