Preying on a Mantis

August 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

My four year old spotted this little guy from across the driveway this afternoon. I rushed in to get the camera but the clouds broke into full sun before I could get back outside. The scene was too bright for how I wanted to capture this shot so I ran back in and grabbed a 4'x5' black posterboard, wrapped it in an arch over both he and I and snapped away. The boys and I watched him for quite a while before he eventually retreated and camouflaged into a thick batch of switch grass.
