I’m going to admit that taking the photos of this made me really jumpy. Especially when I wanted to get this closer shot and I’ve got my camera up in this thing’s face. When my flash pops up on the top of my camera, I jumped and maybe squealed a little bit because I thought it was the mantis jumping at me. I would have peed myself if I hadn’t been using the screen on the back. If I’d had my eye to the viewfinder when that happened, I’d probably be looking at how much it cost to fix a broken camera. No, I’m not a huge fan of bugs and stuff like that. Probably why you don’t get to see too many photos of them.
These things have done so much damage to my Rose of Sharons and the leaves on a lot of my trees. Thankfully they aren’t nearly as bad this year as they were a couple of years ago.
Just wanted to drop a note and wish all those that ever fill the role, no matter who you are, a Happy Father’s Day! I’ll be busy with the kids making it an awesome day for Hubby.
