[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sorry for not writing any critiques nor any notes in this one. As I am busy preparing to go out of town.

I saw our friend Bayram (boreocypriensis)posting a beautiful skink dedicated to me. I could not resist thanking him. I dedicate this Mantis (ID unknown to me) to him. THANK YOU VERY MUCH BAYRAM for the beautiful dedication.

Hello Haraprasan,

A wonderful capture of this mantis. Very good POV and great sharpness. Wonderful detail of the head. Almost monochromatic colour picture.

Good capture from a unique POV Haraprasan, the monochromatic composition in different hues of brown is pleasant to watch my friend, sure Bayram will like this...

Hello Haraparsan,
Good work. Nicely done macro witj a lot of sharpness.
Further on I like the monochromatic colours.

Hola Haraprasan, excelente enfoque de esta fotogenica Mantis. Un saludo

Hi Haraprasan, splendid capture of fantastic mantis, wonderful details and superb sharpness, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Haraprasan!
This time something from your archieve :)
Very nice face-to-face picture of mantis. And the species ttaly new for me (you are lucky as there are so many Mantodea species in your country :>). Very low POV and nice details/sharpness brings special feelings - I can feel like small insect before this "terrible" predator :>
TFS and all the best my Friend!
