Praying Mantis - was looking forward when I started trying to take the shot then I noticed he turned for the portrait. Taken near Olympia, Wa.
I really appreciate the comments!
Awesome macro...one of my favorite insects...so predatory looking...and acting!
super shot. i've only seen these live a couple of times in my life. fascinating.
Wow, what a nice catch and close-up
Hi Jim, WOW!
Excellent pose of the most tenacious insect to walk the planet. It is beautiful. Happy New Year!
