Default Find me if you can...

Hiking up to the fire lookout tower, we came across this praying mantis. For the life of me I couldn't get a sharp picture of him. I realize now, (of coarse) I should have used manual focus...
And the 12-24mm makes a lousy macro lens.

Even if you don't pay attention to the mantis, it's still a very cool picture!

My eyes were drawn immediately to the mantis. It's a good photo. Love the colors.

Yeah, I hear your maybe, Gina.If you don't have a nice wide angle lens already, this is a must have lens.

Since my widest lens is @18 and that's with the 18-55 and 18-250, I really should make my next purchase a wide-angle.
