A Praying Mantis that was hanging out on my back door. In this capture of him I caught him cleaning his claw and looking at me like I was going to be his next meal! lol lol

This was taken in my back yard with a Panasonic FZ 50 in Odessa, Texas Usa

Photography to me is a way to preserve the astounding wonders of our world. It is a way of bringing life to lifelessness, to stir our emotions upon seeing something fantastic.
Hope you enjoyed viewing through my eyes.
