[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've only lived here in Canada on the shores of Lake Erie for just a little over two years but it seems as the fall brings some interesting happenings. First off my back yard is bordered by a hay field so not sure if that helps this situation or not. But for some reason my back yard is covered with thousands of crickets, grasshoppers, there are this praying mantis as well, not everywhere but more than I ever have seen before, somewhat rare to find one in Vermont where I am from. Not totally crazy about bugs am I but this guys always fansinate me. I don't mind picking them up and watching them. This guy I had to save from my lawn mower after running in the house to get my camera..a great break from mowing my 6" tall grass that grew while I was on a trip with my husband!
I have another one as well that I took after I put him in a different location that I'll post another time. Hope you like it!

Ciao Donna Rasmussen ,
bello il soggetto della foto, peccato sia sfuocato.
Bentrovata in Treknature!


Hi Donna,
Great macro.Nice composition and amazing soft colours. Congratulations,


Hello Donna,
Macro work well done!
In spite the little green guy has excellent camo you make him stand out well in the surroundings...
Well framed situation, and nicely presented in a fine composition!
