Give Em A Chance ~ Camera-Critters #175

O.K. Y'all know that I like bugs... well, excluding ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, and black fly gnats. I like the COOL bugs. I tend to see a beauty in them that most others don't see. I find them fascinating, intriguing, and, yes, sometimes beautiful.

With the star of this week's Camera-Critters, well, I find these critters comical, full of personality, and fascinating all at the same time. Maybe after viewing all my bug posts, I might inspire just one person to, instead of running away from a bug, stop and actually look at it and watch it. They're really not something to fear... well, most of them anyway.

Pretty cool, huh? O.K. fine... YES, I CAN see you rolling your eyes and shaking your head at me.

Great Praying Mantis photos, they are a fascinating creature, to bad we don't have them here in Middle Alberta.


Those are such good shots of a praying mantis, and we DO have lots of them here. I will agree with you on this one - they are cool, not to mention beneficial because they eat lots of the bad bugs. :)


Great shots of the praying mantis. I love the close ups. One gets a far greater appreciation of these amazing tiny creatures.

I'm with you on this - most bugs are great fun to watch and totally harmless to humans. :)


Your shots are so clear! I love that color green. :)


WoW! Awesome macros... I don't mind 'cool bugs' either & this one IS beautiful!!! =)

Awesome closeups and a cool looking bug.

delightful shots.

My critter post, have a nice weekend!


I adore bugs (as long as they don't land on me unexpectedly or draw my blood). Don't see many praying mantises around here so this is a real treat for my eyes.

These are great macro photos.



Mantids are great subjects to photograph. You can feel a thought process behind those eyes. Excellent close-ups.

Maude Lynn

These are spectacular!


Mantis are awesome! Thanks for sharing! Here is my entry.


I love bugs too and the mantis is one of my favorites. I was mowing the lawn a couple of days ago and rescued three of them, moving them off the lawn onto some bushes.

Great macro shots of this little cutie.


oooh nice... :)


Very cool. You can see the attitude on the face! I love your bug shots, keep 'em coming.


I love the purple back ground too, what is it?


Pretty cool, nah. Exceedingly cool! uh yeah.:)
