Another Macro Mantis shot with my Powershot SX130IS. Hand held. The shutter speed was about one one thousandth of a second.

Wow, that is close - they do look fearsome at this scale of magnification. Great shot...

Thanks everyone. I go out every day and lean in close and talk to these critters trying to get them used to my presence so I do not overly stress them when I want to take pictures.

My first thought was that he was laying flat on a mirror, then realized that wasn't the case. Good shot!

A wonderful insect portrait of one of my favorite creatures.

That's a little too close for me! Great shot, even though bugs make my skin crawl, lol.
