And from the side:
An enormous praying mantis lurked around a corner.
She seems quite cheerful for someone in such mortal peril.
And here is the point at which my camera made the Angry Noise of Death and told me that my batteries needed to be recharged. Some idiot had forgotten to bring the car charger and charge the batteries on the drive over. That idiot might have been me. So rest assured that the rest of the gardens were just as spectacular and populated with gigantic bug sculptures, and that it was fantastic. I'm hoping to be able to get back out there and take more pictures. Until then, remember kids: Always charge your camera batteries. And go to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It's really cool.
