To make you smile

My dear friend Darcy hosts a "Sweet Shot Tuesday" party each week. I'm joining her today to share this amazing shot captured by my 14-year-old son.




I never would have believed you could get a praying mantis to smile for the camera. Maybe I should try looking at the world through a child's eyes more often.
