Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Mantis” by Christopher Baker. Location: Bankhead National Forest, Alabama.

“I was photographing a waterfall in Bankhead National Forest when this praying mantis appeared on a nearby rock,” explains Baker. “I didn’t have a macro lens with me and the mantis was shaded under a rock ledge, so I decided to incorporate the brightly lit, colorful background and set up a nice silhouette.”
