This is nothing short of sensational! The pose is amazing, colors are outstanding, details could not be sharper. Beautiful on the black background and with the framing. A work of art!

Very interesting the attitude of the mantis. Coming out of the dark gives to the picture a lot of impact. And its eyes, amazing.
Thanks for this excellent picture

I find the facial expression as caught in this frontal view of a Praying Mantis, quite amusing. Fine sharpness at the front, excellent black BG making the whole a special portrrait.
Well done and TFS!

What a brilliant, and funny, capture of a Mantis. I like the way he is facing you with spread legs as if ready to attack! I love the eyes and the colours look great against the black. Great work!
Many thanks, Ulla

Awesome portrait shot of this mantis. Very neat and sharp image with spot-on focus on its eyes. Great use of flash lighting and the resultant black BG works well here in creating a fabulous effect. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

What a funny picture of mantis species! I like a lot the low POV which is a portrait POV too. Great details and sharpness. Bravo also for light control, the insect looks like comming from the darkness :)
