Praying Mantis

Hi Friends,

This may be closer than you want to be to this big bug, but the macro (extreme close up) perspective really let you see its bizarre body. It was about 5-6" long and climbing on my railing. I put an extension tube on the lens to get it to focus this close, and I was fascinated by the eyes; they looked right back at me with an interested gaze I had not expected! The wonders of nature.

I hope you enjoy it,

Ray Matthews
