A few weeks ago, hubby had moved the generator out of the shed to do some cleaning.  He noticed a praying mantis resting on the generator, so I dashed in the house for the camera.  I put my Macro lens on, hoping to get some really close shots of this fascinating creature.  Imagine my surprise when it suddenly jumped onto the camera lens! Brings an entirely new meaning to the words "close-up shot".   I dropped the camera onto the ground, fortunately on the grass, and endured a great deal of laughter from hubby and our youngest grandson.  But, I did manage to get a decent shot, before the panic set in!

That IS an amazing shot. So lucky for you that you dropped your camera ON THE GRASS!
