_MG_8217 Wary, but curious

This one hasn't seen a camera lens in a long time so it was constantly trying to hide from me. Was lucky to get this eye-to-eye moment!

Canon EOS 20D
1/40s f/20.0 at 60.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Oh I like this shot. It's like 'Oh darn, she finally caught me".

Like the eyes.

I do believe you might have as many portraits of your mantis pets as I have of my Shebang. What a great idea it was to get them to raise as photograpic subjects. I've really developed a liking for these little aliens, from seeing all your pictures of your babies growing up.

One lady's "creepy" is another lady's "cute".
