Santa Monica Boulevard near entrance to 101 freeway
Thanks for sending this photo of a Preying Mantis. Also, congratulations on you winning the top prize from a field of 64 photographers in the photography competition at the College Media Advisers’ 2009 convention in Austin, Texas. Though I was unable to attend, I am very proud of you and the other LACC Collegian students who collectively picked up four awards. I am proud to have had you as a beginning photo student.
