Well the days of summer are drawing towards school.... School begins on Tuesday so with the nice weather we have, I forced the kids to go outside and play in the sprinkler that took all summer for me to buy. They found something very exciting out there in the yard... yup you guess it... a praying mantis. Now, they aren't my favorite bug by far, but they are an interesting one. I couldn't help but pull out my camera and give it a shot! So I'm posting some photos of the bug for you all to see.
I used my Canon l series 70-200 mm lens at 200 mm on aperture priority.
This is not a macro clens but the size of the PM made it easy to get close with.
