Does she have an itchy foot?
This was another insect Bridger spotted. He ran in, “Mom! I think you will want to take a photo of this praying mantis out here!” I grabbed my camera and hurried after him.
When I got there and started shooting, this praying mantis turned out to be a natural model, striking several interesting poses in quick succession. This was my favorite, though, chewing on her foot, because it made me think of my dogs and horses 🙂
This was when I was new enough to my camera that I was having a hard time with some focus and depth of field issues, but you can see most of her pretty well.
