  1. I rarely ever see these guys in my own backyard. Last week this one was sunning himself on the screen of my porch. He then walked into a small adjacent tree. I heard a loud buzzing but I was concentrating on shooting the Mantis so I couldn't tell where it was coming from. Ten seconds after the last shot here, he lunged for the cicada that I hadn't seen. The cicada got away but in its panic it flew right into my lens!

    Thanks for looking,
