Ah if only I had any sort of camera besides a phone. Which leads me to the topic of what camera you guys would recommend for beginners?

Opened the front door and saw this mantis at face level. Bit of a startle I must admit. Lol! Mantis.jpg

Don't see these very often in my area. This one's nearly 6" in length.

This is the other mantis species in my area. Small maybe 3", hanging on the window screen by the front door. Small mantis.jpg 20170926_145840.jpg
Don't keep mantids, but are cool to see them about, left it alone to do its thing.

I saw a few in the gardens when I was doing the water photos this weekend. Mom used to collect the egg cases in the fall and hatched them out in the spring. She'd release them into the fields after the weather warmed up. It was crazy to see all those little mantids running about on release day.
