October 16, 2008 Praying Mantis Is In The House
I lied. The bug was outside the house, on the stairway railing. Just hours after I took these award-winning shots, the neighbor smacked the creature. It was last seen flying south in an erratic manner. Do not adjust your tuner—the bug was really upside down for that one photo. I have a feeling that the bug really hated me, especially when I held the lens right up to his wacky head.
