Foto Finish: Macro

Posted by on 2 April 2011

Foto Finish

I was pretty excited when I read what the theme was for this week’s Foto Finish.  That theme is…..macro.  I just love macro photography.  I love seeing all the little things in the world come to life in front of my lens.  Sometimes I get a really good capture, and sometimes, a not so good one.  No matter what, I have fun with it!!

This week’s Foto Finish photo that I chose is one from last summer.  I followed this praying mantis all over the yard waiting to get the right shots of him.  He finally lit on one of the wild sunflowers in my back yard.  He blended in so well, he was almost hard to get.  If you notice in this shot, he’s pretty much looking right at me!!

Here’s my Foto Finish (click to enlarge)….

P.S.  I also want to thank those that commented on my Foto Finish last week.  I’m sorry I didn’t get around to comment on yours, but I WILL be by this weekend to check out your macros!!

    How cool! Great shot of the mantis, insects are so hard to capture. Love the monochromatic green of the picture.

    Love your praying mantis. I have a shot like this, and he’s looking right at me too! The must be camera hogs. Really great shot. Thanks for posting to Foto Finish.
