Up close with a praying mantis

20130610-154135.jpg
This is the first, and so far only, time I have caught a praying mantis in the wild on camera. It’s also only the third time in my life that I have seen one outside of a zoo or county fair exhibit. I’ve never discovered one on my own.

This last time my daughters spotted it as I picked them up from school. A handful of students shrieked with joy as I laid down in front of the mantis to take shots.

I commanded the children to leave it alone to go on his merry way, and they did. Shot with Hipstamatic on iPhone 4.

When I'm not busy with my churchy duties, I write, make deliveries for my wife's flower shop, and snapping pics with my iPhone.
