    Young Praying Mantis

    This evening, as I was watering the flowers(the wife is on a business trip) I found this young Praying Mantis. I have always been intrigued by these little guys so I decided to try my hand at shooting him/her? Luck had it that it was still there when I got back with the camera. C&C welcome.

    Wow Jon, nice captures. I especially like the second one, he/she is looking straight at you.. Every now and then we are lucky and find one around our place... They are really fascinating creatures.

    I also like the second one because he seems to be looking at you. Also because the yellow flowers don't seem as blown out. Very cool series!

    Trina and Terri, thanks for the comments and taking the time to look at my pics. I will see if it is out again tonight, maybe have some better lighting.
