Camera-Critters #80 & Today's Flower 62

Grace and I are traveling in the US for the following one month. We will spend the next 10 days at Yosemite and Sierra to photograph Fall color. Thus we are posting a single blog for Camera-Critters and Today's Flower. Can you see the critter in this picture? It is the yellow mantises on the leave.

Can you find the critter in this one? It is the green mantises perfectly camouflaged itself behind the stem.

Here is a closer look. The black dots in its compound eyes actually followed my movement. It tried to hide from me behind the stem.

Now where is the critter in this picture? It is the ant at the center of the picture. Can you see it?

Enjoy your next trip to US. I can't imagine the fall scenery in USA. Only experienced once fall season in JiuZai Valley, China.
