Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

The instructions are: Go out and take photos and share a shot that reveals a new and different POV. You can take a picture of a familiar subject in a fresh way.  You can consider other approaches, too:  Use something natural (window, tree, wall of a building, etc.) to frame your shot.  Get low on the ground to take a picture from a very different angle.  Focus on a specific part of a person, object, or structure (instead of all of it) — or intentionally cut off a part of your subject or scene.  Place something in between you and your subject/scene to offer a distinct perspective.

I’ve been thinking about this all week without coming up with anything. Then I thought, why does it have to be my POV? This little praying mantis has been hanging out on one of my guandu plants. He’s especially fun to photograph because he watches me very carefully, turning to face me as I move around the plant. And, he has a very interesting little face! What is his POV as some big person keep pointing a shiny black thing at him?

This little green praying mantis is only a couple inches long.

Even upside down he continues looking at me wherever I go.

What a face!

What a face!

A praying mantis is good for a garden because they eat bugs. I have some leaf cutter ant damage on a couple of my guandu plants. If he wants to eat ants he’s very welcome to stay, and bring all his relatives too!
