I love the way a mantis always looks slightly ticked off... they always make wonderful subjects!! good capture, here... it's a little soft and it would have been nice to see the whole mantis, but good colors and pose... thanks for sharing! -laurita

Nice macro. Good compo. Sharpness is fading out a bit. Nevertheless a good result.
Thx and regards, Ruud

Welcome back. What you have here is the Praying mantis - Polyspilota aeruginosa.
Interesting composition with the low POV, the colours are quite natural, and the DOF is a little shallow (probably brought on by the fact that you chose to get real close and focused on the frontal body only where a full bodied shot would have been more forgiving at f/18). The exposure was well managed and it shows nice contrasts.
Well done and TFS.

"Mad" woman got a good shot of the Praying Mantis. Good composition Reina, especially with teh sky behind him. It could be a bit sharper, but you managed the colours and pose very well, TFS
It's great to see you back, I'm sure you had a fantastic trip to SA.
Good detail, colours and sharpness. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV and composition.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week my friend.
