Hello There

I startled this Preying Mantis as I was mowing the lawn this afternoon. It flew to the neighbor's yard and waited for me to grab my camera. Very cooperative fellow I'd say. It was very wary of my camera but didn't shy away for some closeup shots.

Preying Mantis is the only bug ( that I'm aware of ) that can turn it's head. This critter followed every move I made. Glad to have one of these in the garden.
Wonderful macro -- he's got his eyes on you !! fav
