Praying Mantis pics

Just seemed like a decent photo opportunity when I saw this critter sitting on the handle of one of the wagons underneath the car port.

Taken with Nikon D850 using the Nikon 70-180mm Micro lens.

I love how you can see the black dot in "her" eyes - it shows her focal spot and she's definitely keeping an eye on you!

Great shots (as usual).

Yes, definitely has her eyes on me............

It was VERY hard trying to focus on that eyeball. I'm really not sure if I was successful or not.

I think what really astonishes me with this camera is that photos with such black backgrounds and stark contrast still expose the subject nearly perfectly. I don't have to do any sort of compensation at all trying to get it "right".

Makes taking photos like this about as easy as falling off a log.

So you say - pretty sure mine wouldn't come out like that....
