It's so interesting to see the different editing choices that people use and how a focal length can be successfully used to fulfill the creative vision of people in so many different ways. Anyway, I captured this image a couple of weekends ago when we had some drizzly weather.

I was quite chuffed with myself having shot a series of images of this mantis stalking and grabbing a stink bug. When I reviewed the images I was astonished by a small fly that quite happily snuck in for a quick snack right under the jaws of the feeding mantis. The fly there for at least 6 second because I see it in four successive images which were shot 2-3 seconds apart. Needless to say, if I was that size I wouldn't be anywhere near those jaws.
