Praying Mantis

Found it clinging to a screen door. Moved it to a curly leaf parsley in our herb garden and went inside and grabbed the camera. Luckily it hadn't moved. Thanks for the votes and comments on my goat portrait.

I think it likes the parsley, and is looking at you, nice shot.

Thanks all for your comments, votes and UA's. It's an older shot taken with my first DSLR but I love the pose she(he) took as I crept in closer. Was hoping others would enjoy it too. Smile
