This guy was guarding his airspace quite assiduously. He stood still for a few fractions of a second and I was able to catch this.
Captured with my 70-200mm lens.
This praying mantis was really keeping an eye on me. He really wasn't too sure about the fill flash and me interrupting his hunting. He has a blue nose. Really.
Don't forget to view it large.
