Baby Praying Mantis found in a porch pot (Ann Arbor, MI). Shot with a Nikon D300 and a 60mm macro lens.
It was just about sunset when I first saw about 20 or 30 newly hatched mantids. By the time I grabbed my camera, this was the only one I could find. The light had faded a lot, so I used a flashlight in one hand and the camera in the other!
