Praying Mantis Preying


("Share? Me? When I finish my appetizers this guy is history!")

The mailman brought me my new toy - an adapter to allow use of my 1980's vintage 100mm macro in Contax/Yashica mount so I went out to test it and came upon this happy couple. I was still interested in finding something to freeze with high speed flash but had backed off to 1/1000 (1/4000 seems a bit extreme). In the full size version it is more clear that one of the two beetles is missing its head.
