"Baby Praying Mantis" by Caryn Caldwell

I took a picture of this little one yesterday afternoon in our day lilies. It was fascinated by my camera lens and kept trying to get closer, turning its head to look more carefully. Lots of fun to photograph this one, though I must say baby praying mantises are TINY! Focusing wasn’t easy, especially when the breeze kept blowing the day lilies around.

These purple flowers didn’t last long, but while they thrived the neighborhood bees were very happy.

A honeybee sips from a flower in the Colorado mountains between Silverton and Durango. One from the archives, obviously. I recently purchased textures for the first time, and have been playing around. This is one of my first experiments with them.

Same bee, different flower. This one was processed with Moody Pop from the Coffee Shop Blog for a little different look.
