Another excellent presentation from you and this time of a very interesting and unique (at least for Europe) species.
I honestly can't wait for the new season to begin...i really need to get some new macro photos :)
This is again a very nice shot, with excellent detail on the entire length of this animal, with lovely natural colors and a great DOF.
As usual, i always love your notes, too :)
I do feel that this image is just a little too dark and so i created a workshop to bring more light on the subject...i hope that's ok with you, my friend.
Anyway, wonderful work!
Bravo and TFS

The background really makes this picture different from others...very nicely chosen, either by you or the mantis:-) Well capture in low light situations then using the flash!.

You too posted a mantis!
In my country are only registered 4 species (Ameles decolor, A. spallanzania, Empusa fasciata and, of course, Mantis religiosa). Till now I only saw M.religiosa and E.fasciata, hope to see the other too soon!
The capture is great with very nice details!

Great shot Radomir!!
There's so much detail!
You must have eagle eyes to spot this... it's got amazing camouflage!
Great POV and composition.
Nice earthy colours.

Once more perfect reproduction of the fine mantis. We have only green and sandy coloured species. I like impressive substrate and its texture reproduction. DOF is great. I love this technique. I think the shot is not underexposure. At least I like level of exposure. Very impressive look.
P.S. Unfortunately I have not inspiration to write ferry photo story. I have overestimated my "talent".
