Praying Mantis

130412_Morris_Preying Mantis by Karl Graf. I am captivated by sculptures … all kinds.  This is a giant wood sculpture of a Praying Mantis in Morris Arboretum’s (Philadelphia, PA) new “Bugs” display.  I encourage anyone in the area to make a visit.

My challenge for this day’s shoot was to visualize in Black and White.  The Mantis’ warm brown wood tone against the bright blue sky with a couple of white puffy clouds provided the contrast that I was looking for.
