Praying Mantis Wow!

My daughter took this image last Sunday. I was teaching her how to take macro photos by manually focusing and using a good steady tripod. She took this image for use in a photo contest at school sponsored by the PTA. Last year she was runner up at state. I hope she goes all the way to national this year.

 

Of course I also had to teach her how to convert the RAW image in photoshop to set the contrast, color and sharpness. She is a great student and caught on quickly. Don't you think?
