My daughter spotted this baby Praying Mantis on a park bench along the Trinity River. It was only about as long as my thumbnail. The Mantis wasn't keen on having her picture taken and climbed up on the camera several times. I tried to use the S5's ability to focus on an object touching the lens, but I was not fast enough. Still got some keepers. This was one of the best. I had debated bringing my camera with me today and was glad I brought it along.
