A month ago my mother gave me a cocoon of 50-100 praying mantis and I’ve been checking it almost every day for signs of “sawdust” that means they are eating their way out of the cocoon. Yesterday I noticed the sawdust and today……I saw 25 or so tiny babies crawling all over my veggie garden!

I have no clue who came up with the term or what they were drinking but in my opinion “camel toes” are nasty….hairy, dirty, and just not the term that I would pick to describe…….<insert a nicer term>.

Looking around for some ideas to keep me busy indoors this year winter I’ve been searching for things to take pictures of.  These are my attempts to capture a strawberry being dropped into a glass of sparkling water.

For Sale:  Tokina 80-200  Nikon Mount Price:  $35,000.00 but on sale today for just $40.00 unless you want to offer more.

Shipping:  $10.00

History:  I bought the lens as part of a kit (camera, two lenses and a flash) just for the one lens (50mm 1.8) and the flash.  I have no use for the lens other than to make my camera bag a couple of pounds heavier.

Condition:  Not minty, mint or even in excellent condition!  I can’t see any scratches on the glass but it has some haze on the inside.  The lens has some paint imperfections and wear but giving it’s age and price you can’t complain much.  The zoom is a push pull and it DOES slip a little.

Included:  Lens, front cap, rear cap (not the correct one but it fits), filter and a fake leather bag to put it all in.
