Here's a few shots of a praying mantis which had spent over two weeks in my butterfly bush. I used a 580EX flash with the wide angle refractor panel pulled down, monopod and several extension tubes for these shots.

An excellent set.

Interesting how the red on the thorax shows up differently.

Cool shots of a cool critter Herb

Some noise in the bg distracts me on some of them though.

The last shot is great

Wow, Herb, these are some masterfully captured images! I love No. 5 and I didn't see your title until somewhat later and I got a chuckle. That's what I would call that one, too. Thanks for sharing!
