A Praying Mantis Smiles at the Camera

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Peter Genovese

A praying mantis was out on the prowel for dinner until I lit him up with a flashlight at dusk and shot this photo with no flash. He gave me the perfect pose and looked right at me when I shot the picture.

Location: Northridge, CA (Los Angeles County)
