Mantis & Lizard photos
« on: August 28, 2016, 11:17:42 am »
A few months back during the summer I went camping and got a few photos of a praying mantis on the first day and a western fence lizard as I was packing up to head home. Feel free to tell me what you think.
Here are the results:

Great shots  -  that third one is the best in my opinion!

I have yet to spy a preying mantis this year. We have a colony of five-line skinks nearby, but no joy there either. Took a few shots of a Cicada Killer though.

I think the 3rd one came out the best too, might have been the only picture I managed to get the camera to focus right on the mantis, it was a bit on the small side.

Never seen a Cicada Killer before so I had to look it up, looks like a giant wasp.
