I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Praying Mantis on the side of our Garage

I couldn’t believe it when I saw him.  He’s three to four inches long.  Biggest one I’ve seen in years.  The picture doesn’t really represent his size.  He was giving me the once over, I’ll tell you.

A few weeks ago I loaded this image.  Yesterday I discovered an editing program called, “Aviary,” (it’s free) and was astounded at its strength.  My original post didn’t even show the grass in the lower left hand corner…let alone its color.  It sharpened the picture and allowed me to bring forth greater color and tone.  For my friends, this editing program is for phones and tablets.  “I am not being paid to push this program!”
