MACRO MANTIS.......

I happened to notice a praying mantis on one of my front windows so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few up close and personal.

That is a nice one. The last one I saw was totally green and that was last year.

Nice photo.

That thing looks HUGE. Is it just the camera angle, or was it actually the size of a small horse?

Melinda said...

he was good size! hahaha...but not as large as a horse! Maybe about 6 inches or so......

Melinda said...

hum.......I am not sure that sounded very good! haha

I ran across your site through your dad's site which I found through a site called Authorblog. I love your pictures...all of them. I have started taking pictures and developing an addiction almost. I honestly don't know if my camera has a macro mode on it...probably not? It's not an overly expensive camera. I think it's a Olympus SP550UZ something like that. I'm actually at work and can't look at it right now. I haven't started a photo blog, but I might. I've put some photos on my regular blog, but not tons. I'm so glad I ran across this site. I really want to go home and take a better look at my camera. :) Thanks.
