Greetings, Earthlings.........
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Greetings, Earthlings.........
Greetings, Earthlings.........
This shot is very comical looking. I found this praying mantis in my flower box outside my kitchen window. Naturally, supper had to wait while I ran and got my camera. The red glow of the background in this shot comes from a row of tomatoes setting in the kitchen window along with the light from inside. Enjoy!

    INCREDIBLE capture!!! Love the composition of the mantis leaning into the frame! And the background is fantastic as well as the lighting on the "antenas".
