Here is the photo that started it all,  the one that has turned out the be the most popular, and my personal favorite:

Praying Mantis Visit   Leave a comment

I found this praying mantis on my doorstep last week, and promptly took it to my studio (aka table with black backdrop) for a quick photoshoot before releasing her (him? it?). Not a very stationary subject, but these two shots turned out OK.

Every time I walk the dog, these little bunnies run for cover. This time, I captured one of them on the run (or in flight).
