Her eyes scan the new landscape
in search of a map, a flower’s cosmology
ready for misadventures.
Chinese Praying Mantis | Tenodera aridifolia sinensis

I like it a lot!! Such a great capture, well done! 🙂
Very cool shot.
Awesome shot. Thank you for sharing it with Leaves On Thursday and also Buggy Friday.
Impressive shot. Love the shallow depth of field.
Impressive shallow depth of field work
Great composition. Focus just right on the front part of the mantis. and I love that the flower? in the back looks almost as if it exploded. 😉
Always fantastic Rick Lieder! Amazing clarity of those roving eyes!
Awesome shot, well done.
Very nice shot.
Awesome, I love how the insect “jumps” out of the blurry background.
Most dramatic effect.
Psychedelic trip, altered sensory experience. A mantis seeking a mystic in the haze, GROOVY!! R.L.
Thanks Diane. Flower power.
I will never see an insect the same way again. Such beautiful creatures the way you capture on camera.
