Found this guy while I was shooting in the cemetery attached to the Seifukuji Buddhist temple up in the mountains. He was perched on the base of a stone lantern at a family tomb.

Cool mantis shot. It almost look like he is trying to stare you down. BTW Are you the same Mike Cash that used to write the "Japan from the Drivers Seat" column for Gate 39?
