Took some pictures of this gal because ... well, Praying Mantises are cool bugs. She was cleaning up after a tasty meal of a honeybee. I would have preferred she eat a fly, but my opinion was not taken into account when she made her meal selection. At least she created numerous triangles with her body parts as she cleaned; far more interesting to me than just a portrait of her head ;-)

Had my extension tubes on (36mm + 20mm) and used diffused fill flash.

PP - cropped, levels, increased saturation and contrast, resized, sharpened, added border.
