Praying Mantis

Bronchitis Sucks! I've been sick for the last week, too sick to even touch up photos. The worst is over now and I'm back on my feet at least. Bronchitis always takes awhile to recover from since it messes up your ability to get oxygen into your body. I remember last time I had it even a month after I had no stamina in the gym.

I should be posting more photos again now. I'm shooting this weekend and Yosemite the next weekend. Should be fun.

Today's Photo – Praying Mantis

While hiking through the Takachiho Gorge in Southern Japan we came across one of these guys. A Praying Mantis. It's been awhile since I've seen one of these. I live in L.A. now and not much wildlife makes its way into the concrete jungle. I use to see then a lot when I lived in San Juan Capistrano as a kid as well as San Diego.
