    Love the perspective. The spider web looks almost like... pixie dust?

    First time I've ever encountered a praying mantis "in the wild".

    I am what God made me. And so I pray... for prey.

    Looks really good to me, Barrie. I think, of the small sensor superzooms, the Pannys are the best. Maybe not the longest, but they are the best of the genre (IMO). Here, it looks like a really sharp capture. Love it.

    Great shot, lovely detail! This is a poster child for "Ask yourself - do you really need a DSLR?"

    It's the pattern of the carpet. Or are you referring to her leg? Maybe I threw the background TOO out of focus with my shallow DOF.

    Or are you referring to her widow's peak? And speaking of distractions, I was going to clone out her leash at upper left, but it's just a quickie grab shot.....nothing important.
