Holding on Tight and Praying She Doesn't Eat Me

Sunday September 15, 2013

Bartlesville, OK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: It's amazing, what you find at night if you search the flower garden. Tonight I found these praying mantis mating. I'm afraid he will lose his life when she is through with him. I believe she will eat him.

LOL! That doesn't always happen, but often enough that the mating game is a real hazard.

Awesome capture, and yes she will. I guess mine is a female because she is huge.

About mbryan777

mbryan777

Hello. My name is Mike. I moved from a very large city in California to a small city in northeastern Oklahoma, USA. I am enjoying the slower lifestyle in Oklahoma and taking pictures of flowers, sunsets, sunrises, clouds, storms insects and hills. I have an engineering degree, but I minored in Biology so I really enjoy studying nature and how God engineered it. I've always loved photography but digital macro photography and weather photography are my favorites. Slowing down to study the small things, like flowers, has continually reminded me that God gives us many blessings that are simply for our pleasure and He is the designer of beauty.
