Praying to the Sun

Ysterday I was walking to my car to go get some supplies and this little fellow was sunning himself on the hood of my car. I ran back into my place, grabbed my camera and my macro lens, and ran back out.

I did a quick check to make sure the settings were right, and started taking pics. To the mantis' credit, he followed me only with his eyes, not moving or being scared off.

After I was done taking pics, I gently scooped him up and placed him on a nearby tree. He was gone by the time I got back from my supply run.
