Moth and mantis
Any time I find a praying mantis, I just have to grab my camera. Even if I can’t get close enough for a really awesome shot, there’s just something so amazing about these insects. I found this one hanging out in our front yard, and I stalked her for at least half an hour; I’m sure she was hoping I’d just go away and leave her alone!
Here’s another insect who dropped by for a visit the other day. I’m not sure why type of moth it is, and it flew away before I could get a better shot.
