On Top of My World Photo Contest Finalist
On Top of My World
On Top of My World

The first of a series of five praying mantis photos. I managed to get so many shots of these colorful wonders over the years that I decided to feature them for the next few days. This one is on top of an "Autumn Joy" sedum flower.
