On a rainy day last week we spotted this guy on the a/c unit in the backyard. I love photographing praying mantis. They are a more than willing subject. They are not skittish. They will pose for you endlessly. They will however keep a close eye on you while you're doing this. What ever angle you move to, a mantis will rotate it's head with precision to keep an eye on you. And what EYEBALLS they have!!! I felt like he was staring into my soul!!
I am a wife and a mom. Being a mom one of my greatest blessings. Having kids is one of the most rewarding things in life! On that same note it's also one of the hardest things at the same time! My boys are so cute! Did I mention I also have a really good-looking husband? He's my hero! :)We have a super cool dog too! Border Collies Rock! :) We also have cat who thinks he's in charge, but I love him anyway. I love to cook and bake and try out new recipes. I have dreams of both publishing my own cookbook...and writing/illustrating children's books. I like to dream big! My boys are a constant source of endless ideas for storybooks. So who knows....maybe someday I can turn these ideas into real books!
