Praying Mantis

Maybe not the most technically perfect shot, but as a bit of fun this photo happens to fit two memes today! Yes it is my camera you can see in the reflection.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for all the encouragement you are giving me with this new project, it is really appreciated.

This photo has also been posted at two appropriate memes that I found to join for the first time today.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
