Wonderful shots, Mole

Always amazed at the huge amount of colour you have available - everthing over here seems so drab in comparison

Excellent as always. I especially like the composition of #1, 3, and the last two - the first and last are stunning images. The way the swallowtail and its host plant are shown is a unique perspective - very effective. You get even better with each series.

Thanks for all the kind and helpful comments!

Hiro - glad you liked the stories as well as the photos. Thanks!

Tom - we're about to have a big storm that may knock off a lot of the leaves just before peak. But it sure is a lot warmer here!! Keep warm!

Dal - Thanks! This is a beautiful part of our country - of course, your region has much that is beautiful too - just more subtle...

Penolta - how nice of you to say so! Thanks for the kind and specific comments!!

The first shot should be on a wall.
The first Praying Mantis shot should be in National Geographic.
The mushroom shot I just love.

Mole, The first one just blows me away! I wish I had had another week to spend up there, there was just so much to see!
The praying Mantis is a lot better than the one I managed to get.

Nice series! Love the Mantis. I have not seen one in a long time. They camouflage so well.

I will have to look more carefully at Queen Ann Lace next year for signs of the Swallowtail caterpillars.

Rodney - thanks so much - glad you liked them!

GW - Glad you enjoyed your time "Tennesseeing!"

Lou - we have seen lots of P Mantids this year, and a surprising number of their native cousins, Carolina Mantids. But the Black Swallowtails were very scarce - I was very glad to be able to spot just these few.

Very nice series! While I still haven't finished going through my vacation photos, I'm home sick today and so am playing catch-up with the photo threads. Yours are always so much fun to look at. I love that first one, just awesome.
