"I got lucky," says OWEN DIVICO, 20, of Cold Spring, NY. "I was chasing that praying mantis up and down on a bluff, and he finally stopped just on the edge. It was really steep." Praying mantises are rare in upstate New York, where Divico is starting his senior year at SUNY Oswego. An education major with a concentration in biology, he loves nature photography, particularly landscapes and macro shooting. Tech info: Pentax OptioWP waterproof digital point-and-shoot.
