What an interesting photo, Matt. She's looking right at the viewer, too. Excellent. I was enjoying time with Luke the other might, something came up about flying squirrels, and Luke reminded the folks at the table that you have amazing footage of that little critter in Animals Among Us! Luke said your work on that one scene is probably one chance in a million to film the action. And that the squirrel heads right for the camera, too, is amazing.
Thanks for the thoughts Karen. It took a little prompting on my part to get the Mantis to look at the camera. It was that same prompting that made it put up it's dukes. I particularly like the photo because it reminds me of some horror film poster like "ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT MANTIS!"
