A praying Mantis looking for love. Thanks for viewing, Don

I hadn't noticed that the praying mantis had a heart-shaped face until looking at this picture. I remember my sister and I catching a praying mantis when we were young and being given strict orders to leave it alone. It was a rarity then. But so beautiful. I loved the beautiful purple - it was just the right added touch! A wonderful Valentine gift - of course, I am thinking a little later date as Feb. 26 is my birthday and this is almost exact day for me to find this picture. *g* Great Work, Don.

Thanks Karen, Talsi and Mary! Mary, I acually used the 75x300 I had at the time. I was about 6' away w/ a tripod. It worked OK, but many shots were blurred even with the tripod. It isn't the best for macro, but he was very shy when I got in too close with the 18x55. Thanks again, Don

Unusual, interesting and well done capture. What lens did you use Don?
Guest - Feb 08, 2007 07:43 PM EDT
Excellent shot of the Mantis.

Great color and detail on this fine macro image. Considering what happens to the male if he should take her up on her invitation, I think he'd be better off staying a bachelor!!

Thanks everyone! I sure appreciate the kind words. Alandra, no tubes. I need to get some though. They are on the wish list :-). Thanks again, Don

echoing all the other comments, late again. Were you using an extension tube, Don?

What a great shot...he does look a bit like an alien though...

Outstanding Job Don!! I really like the back lighting along it's neck, or what ever it is :) I love those eyes..
