This morning’s photo was unscheduled, let’s say a bit of a surprise. I’d just spent an hour or so with some friends solving the world’s problems over a cup of coffee, and donuts. As we were leaving one them pointed to the roof of my car. Lo and behold there was a Praying Mantis. An opportunity I couldn’t pass up. After using up over a hundred shots – yes I still use the ‘squeeze and pray’ method when shooting nature, this is the one I think is best.
