Up Close and Personal with a Praying Mantis

While Renee was out of town last week, I was home alone… But BUSY as hell, so it was good thing I was alone right?  I was in the backyard looking over a some things, getting some things planned out when a Praying Mantis scared the crap out of me.

This thing is as big as my thumb… and it scared me, pretty sad, I know.  After laughing at myself for a bit, I ran in side and grabbed the camera and had a photo shoot with a bug. Yes, a bug.  He took direction pretty well, but kept looking off camera, little bugger!

Turns out, I got a couple of good shots and here is my favorite. “You lookin’ at me?”
