For macro shots the shutter speed shoud be high but here f/ 7.1 has not favoured for DOF as the 1/800 speed is very good, here the hanging LEG is a bit OUT rest is Ok..

Hi Tsotsito!
The specimen presented on your picture belongs to Iris oratoria. This is very nice picture presenting the second, very colourful pair of wings.
Best greetings,

Hi Tsotsito,
I like a lot this sunny and full of energy image!
You've got and excellent moment, with that aggressive pose of the insect, while show us its wings.
The vibran colours makes an stunning contrast between them.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Tsotsito,
These insects are amazing!
Simply love them!
Here you cought a nice moment. She seems angry :-)
Nice colors and composition!

Hallo Tsotsito
A wonderful captured moment. The mantis is looking straight at you and the direct contact with the lens is striking. Colours are good as well as the pose. It looks as if this mantis is doing some kind of dance on the flower. The blue of the sky, the yellow of the flower and the green of the mantis blends in well with one another. Fine posting. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

excellent pose/POV, sharpness, and attractive colours, very eye-catching photo, well done
