13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mantis

In the middle of a rushed between-classes sushi lunch with my friend, this little guy flew out of nowhere and landed on our table. Because I happened to be eating with my camera readied in one hand and chopsticks in the other, I captured this shot as he posed for us before he flew off to his next lunch date.
