Tiny hunters break the silk bonds
tethering them to the past, their birth
a twisting tangle of legs and hunger.

WOW! just WOW! Hang ten! or twenty? GREAT CAPTURE RICK!
Thanks Diane. I’ve been swamped by mantids.
Wow! I like it! Makes me wonder how you find scenes like these.
Rick, wow, these are in your garden again? Great shot, on the thumbnail it almost looked like grains poring on a flower.
Love the great flower and those little critters too! Great shot!!
Well done and excellent timing!
Watching them emerge is like a ballet scrum – so beautiful and energetic and funny and full of life …
Absolutely remarkable. Your eye is keen and your poetic descriptions add another amazing level to your photos.
