ysmad Image: Mantis


Description, tags: Mantis -- A mantis in our backyard Nov. 2009 - we placed her in front of our pear trees which were in full fall colors and lightened up by the evening sun. Yes, a little (too much?) pushing with contrast and sharpening on this one :) - see blog post 11/7/2009
