This Praying Mantis hung around our patio for a couple of days and was quite patient while I snapped photos of him.
Terrific image! Can you supply the equipment and exposure info?
The close up photo of the Praying Mantis was taken with my Nikon D800, 105mm F4 AIS macro with one set of extension tubes. It was taken at ISO 200, F16, 1/60s using the pop up flash.
