Hi Didier,
Good close-up. I have allways find it difficult to shoot these critters. You did it very well. Excellent DoF details and colours. Very good composition too.
Very well done.

Wow, Didier, wonderful.
This one has a pretty colour and I like the arangement, I think you turned the photo about 40° to the right.
Thanks for sharing it with us,

Jolie photo avec un bel éclairage.

Very nice macro Didier, Well composed with great sharpness, colors, DOF and POV. This mostly dark BG really helps to make your subject stand out well - Excellent job.

Never too many! Such interesting creatures! And a wonderful capture of one you have here! I like the composition, the colors and detail... TFS! -Laurita

Bonjour Didier,
J'aime beaucoup la lumière dans votre photo ainsi que la composition. Le fond sombre fait bien ressortir l'insecte. Bravo et merci pour le partage!

Amazing shot, Didier. The details are so sharp, and the image so clear. The light and the focus on the insect are superb, though the plant is a bit OE. A wonderful composition. Well done and merci du partage. : )

Superb shot Didier!
Everything is perfect here and the subject of the photo looks superb.
However I think it would've been good to rotate the photo to get vertical framing.
Overall, it's great post.
WELL DONE & TFS

Quoi ajouter à tout ce qui est écrit ci-desous!
Couleurs fascinantes, insecte et fleur. Et cette pose de l'insecte le long de la tige, quelle beauté! Merci Didier. Réussite extraordinaire. Il y a bien une quarantaine d'années que je n'ai pas rencontré une Mante religieuse. J'ajoute une *
