Bug on a bike

    1. Yep, nice of that mantis to hop up there and pose like that.

      I hope this is the photographer’s original composition. I had a different shot up there to start with, but then realized it was a cropped version. I prefer to see what the photographer saw, not what some editor thinks he should have seen.

      This is the cropped version:

      It might be better this way. Still …

      1. 🙂 I like it being anchored with something at the bottom, along with more of the darker area on the left echoing the dark vertical stems. And the yellow tendril at the bottom looks almost like a slow little worm watching the cyclist zoom by.

... and that's my two cents
