I wanted to share a few pictures I took the other day. These were shot with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I was pretty impressed by the quality of the shots.
My subject was a baby Praying Mantis.
We have tons of these things all around the house. For whatever reason, the rose bush, behind my house is a hot spot for Praying Mantis. There are egg sacs all over. These little guys are finding their way into our house. That where I first met this guy.
He’s so tiny, I had to be really careful not to squish him when I moved him outside. It’s supposed to be good luck to have these around.
While there jury’s still out on that one, I did enjoy seeing a baby Praying Mantis, up close and personal. This little guy was really cool and was surprisingly curious about me and my camera.
I have such a profound respect for life, both big and small. This was just a really cool experience. It would have been really easy to just squish this little thing, but if I had done that, I would not have been able to get these shots. 🙂
