A new edit from yesterday,
"One Way Street"
compression has affected it here, it looks a lot cleaner in the gallery

A lot of detail brought out by your choice of timing/lighting, Danny. My late brother loved trains, and I enjoy train tracks as a visual.

It looks great here even under these conditions - great detail and color. I personally don't want to see the end of this encounter, so i will simply enjoy this image of the two of them as whole beings.

Hi CJ,
don't worry about projecting what happened, they both studied each other for a while and then went their own separate ways )

'Mantis and the Ladybug'

As long as you weren't lighting up the victim to make it easier for the mantid to catch her

I like mantids, but I love ladybugs ...

You might have been able to make a more dramatic shot if the ladybug had stayed, but I'm happy for the ladybug - and all her babies. "Ladybug, ladybug,Fly away, home..."
