Hello Miuky & welcome to TN.

Good detail, color, and composition..

A warm welcome to TN, Miuky.
That is a really cute pose.
She reminds me of a geisha hiding behind her fan.
The light is wonderful, really bringing out the sharp details against the dark BG.
Excellent focus and depth of field.
Looking forward to seeing more of your work. : )
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Miuky,
Im a sucker for mantid photos but you have done a really nice job here. The lighting is perfect as it appears the mantid is reacting to it. Well composed and well seen shot.

Ciao Miuky, un caldo benvenuto su TN, bella Mantide nella classica posa di "preghiera", buonamacro, ben definita e con ottima luce, piacere di ritrovarti anche qui, ciao Silvio

bonjour et bienvenu.
un belle premiere bien nette.
la mante semble un peu pudique et n'ose pas nous montrer sa tÍte,ce sera peu etre pour demain!

Hello Muiky,
Welcome on Treknature!Very nice opening post.I liked POV,use of light,dark BG,details and composition a lot.

Hi Miuky,
An excellent shot on this Praying Mantis. I love the pose that makes her look like she is being a little coy here. Nice fill flash exposure has the color and detail looking very good. Nice dark backround shows the mantid well.

Hi Miuky,
impressing portrait of a lady mantis, distinct light and shadow making the pictur look quite dramatic in a well fitting way. Excellent posting. Thank you!
With best regards,

P.S.: Welcome Miuky to TN!
