Alien

I found this Preying Mantis on the inside of the fly-wire last week.  She seemed as interested in me as I did in her!


You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.

  17. One of my favorites, yet, Stewart!!
    I have to admit.. at a glance I thought the title said "Aileen." (which happens to be my grandmother's name.
    I quickly realized my mistake. :)

    Not sure if I already mentioned it, but my blogger reading list feed was down a couple of weeks. Now that it's back working, I'm catching up!

  18. Amazing photo! I'm convinced that these guys are some type of alien life form. They look like they are thinking and might start to talk.

    On a serious note, there is one thing I HATE about them. Did you know that they kill small birds, like humming birds? When I found out this about them, I was shocked.
