Mantis photobomb

As I marched along the deserted horse trail, a flash of bright red caught my eye. The play of shadows on the leaves, backlit by morning sun, was so irresistible I decided that I didn’t mind standing in the dried weeds to capture the shot.

It wasn’t until I checked out the images on my laptop that I saw the praying mantis perched on the same leaves that had attracted me! I’m sure she was wondering what strange one-eyed creature had suddenly descended on her daily routine.
