My new baby mantis are growing up so fast!  Chinese Mantises are a bigger species than Arizona Mantises to begin with.  I expected L3 nymphs, but got L4 nymphs, and they both just molted to L5 within a week of arrival!  They've outgrown the wingless fruit flies I ordered.  I've been feeding them wild caught fruit flies to tide them over.  And today, I prepared their 5 gallon bucket o' house flies!

Also, these guys are way more adventurous than Macro was.  This guy jumped right of my hand onto the ground seconds after this picture was taken!

Tonight's photo project was an exercise in reverse engineering the lighting setup of another photo.

For this moon's full moonrise, Pier 39 in San Francisco gave an excellent vantage point of both the sun setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge, and the full moon rising behind Yerba Buena Island and the Bay Bridge.

I'm going to wait until I'm sure they'll survive. They arrived bigger than I expected, and one of them already molted, so I fear they've already outgrown the food they arrived with.

Technically, the moon was full about 10 hours ago, so I split the difference and photographed the just slightly pre-full moonrise last night, and the just slightly post-full moonrise tonight.

For something a little different, I used my Nikon Reflex-NIKKOR 500mm f/8 lens to get the really juicy huge moon effect.
