Artist's Description

Returning home from the veterinary clinic one evening last October, I got off my bicycle at the front door and realized I had a hitch hiker. An enormous Praying Mantis – sitting almost casually on my bike’s pannier bag looked up at me as I looked down at her. I raced inside and returned with a large lunchbox but she was gone… but not far; she had simply taken up a more commanding position on my handlebars. I carefully scooped her up and spent the evening photographing her, taking advantage of her gentle grace to use a hyper-focal technique compositing many images to create the final completely sharp image you see here.
