Thanks for commenting and L/F this image, Joe. I do find these critters very amusing. . .they have such "expressive" faces! :)

Looks like my old school teacher when she caught me doing something I shouldn't lol. Fantastic loads of character and love the eye contact. LF

Thanks for your comment, Andrew! He does have quite the accusing look. These mantids just seem to have so much personality.

About Carolyn Derstine

Carolyn Derstine

Nature has always played a significant role in my life. On walks with my dad when I was a child, I was taught to notice the world around me and appreciate the wonder of nature and all of God's creation. To this day, being out in nature is balm for my soul and necessary for my well-being. When I took up photography, I suddenly had a way to express my joy in nature by preserving the wonder I see, and then being able to share it with others. Since I have taken up photography, my enjoyment of the world around me is heightened and I am always noticing potential pictures no matter where I am. The whole photography process is intensively and creatively fulfilling for me, from the search for pictures to the final, ready-for-print, edit...
