John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device. I thought this might be fun so I decided to join in.
This photo below was taken with my iPhone yesterday. I was with our dog in the backyard when she spotted a praying mantis on our back deck. Most praying mantises I’ve seen are green, but this one was light brown. My dog was curious and started sniffing the bug, which caused it to scurry over to some tall grasses next to the deck. Right before I snapped this picture, the mantis was looking right at me with worried eyes, but by the time I took the snapshot, my dog, whose nose was poking into the grasses on my left, caught the mantis’ attention, so his eyes are focused on my dog and not on me or my camera. Damn. An instant too late. Still, I thought it was an interesting picture to share.
